The northernmost section of Burgundy is Chablis. No, Chablis is not a grape variety; it is a town where the Chardonnay grape produces quality wines with steely and mineral characteristics.

The world-famous reputation of these wines prompted manufacturers to label their jug wine as “Chablis,” but those wines do a disservice to the dry and crisp wines produced in this region. In fact, some of the most elegant white wines in the world are proudly produced in Chablis. And I import wines from only one Chablis family. The trade journal over there says that Servin is one of the top two winemakers in all of Chablis. And I’m the only person outside of France who has access to his personal, family wines.
