Area Notes: Chablis is the northernmost area of Burgundy, and produces cool-climate Chardonnay wines, usually known for a flinty characteristic and for higher acid, less fruit forward wines than are grown in the rest of Burgundy. Chablis wines are mainly grown on ancient Kimmeridgian limestone, which imparts a great deal of this mineral, flinty characteristic
