Located in northern Burgundy near Auxerre, the Chablis vineyards are alongside a small river aptly named the "Serein" (meaning Serene).
The Chablis region is a limestone plateau cut by valleys. The Premier Crus lie on a stratum dating from the Kimmeridgian (155 millions years BC), with alternating marl and limestone and tiny deposits of oysters in the rock, reminiscent of the warm and shallow sea which then covered Burgundy.
