In Chablis the Chardonnay grape reaches heights of finesse and cleanness rarely, if ever, achieved elsewhere in the world - or even Burgundy. Chablis is noted for its non-use of oak; or when it is used, it should remain hardly noticed in the background.

La Chablisienne is a co-operative founded in 1923 and now encompasses nearly 300 growers and nearly 25% of the area under production. The winery takes direct charge of the vinification; the technical staff working with the growers to define a La Chableisienne style and establishing guidelines for future harvests as well as for maturing, ageing and marketing the wines.

La Chablisienne:

Petit Chablis There is nothing 'little' about this wine; malolactic fermentation and 6 months on the lees add depth, making it a match for many 'grander' AC Chablis.

La Pierrelee A classic style from 20 year old vines enhanced by malolactic fermentation and time on the lees that accentuates its finesse and mineral edge.

Les Venerables
From 35 year old vines with a years ageing on the lees in tank and small barrels. Always released late, it is a rounded and structured Chablis with an extra depth.

Soft and fruity 1er Cru; again with 12 months ageing on the lees in tank and small barrels enhancing the fruit character alongside the mineral edge.
