The Kimmeridgien

The Kimmeridgien is a geologic stage which comes from the Jurassic era (70 millions years ago), it has the particularity of being a clayer soil with marl and limestone.

Situated close to Paris, the mission of the Chablis vineyards has for centuries been to offer white wines of exceptional quality.

The wine's minerality comes from the Chardonnay grape planted in a unique soil called Kimmeridgian. The soil is composed of layers of compact limestone and very soft clay marl containing fossilised marine organisms.

This geological stage dates back 70 million years when the sea receded at the end of the Jurassic period.
