Learn more about Chablis:

The Chablis region is the northernmost wine district of the Burgundy region of France.  The grapevines around the town of Chablis are almost all Chardonnay, making a dry white wine renowned for the purity of its aroma and taste. The cool climate of this region produces wines with more acidity and flavors less fruity than Chardonnay wines grown in warmer climates. In comparison with the white wines from the rest of Burgundy, Chablis has on average much less influence of oak.  Most basic Chablis is unoaked, and vinified in stainless steel tanks. The amount of barrel maturation, if any, is a stylistic choice, which varies widely among Chablis producers.
