The Chablis vineyard is one of the oldest in France. It stretches from northern Burgundy through 20 villages, covering more than 4,300 hectares.
The terroir of Chablis consists of the following: Climate: Chablis is located in a continental zone: hot in summer and cold in winter with spectacular spring frosts.
Topography: The Chablis vineyard is located on south/south-east and south-west slopes facing the Serein river. The average altitude is 120 to 150 metres above sea level.
Soil: a component of the terroir which we have just described. We should add that the Chablis subsoil, consisting of lime marl and oyster fossils (kimmeridgian), is rich and porous, allowing deep rooting of the vines and even water intake.
Grape variety: Chablis wine is made with one single grape variety: CHARDONNAY (white grape).Established since 1850, the Alain Geoffroy estate is a family business growing around45 hectares and producing Chablis wines that uphold the tradition and authenticity of the terroir. fresh and fruity wines with a great mineral imprint.
Today, at the Alain Geoffroy estate, we continue to cherish our vines so that they not only give us wine to satisfy thirst but wines that give pleasure to all. All our Chablis are produced on Kimmeridgian geological zones (Jurassic period). Our wines aromatic richness and strong mineral content comes from this incredible potential of the soil.
