It's amazing how many people don't like Chardonnay but love Chablis.  Chablis is made from Chardonnay, but it is a unique style - flinty dry and crisp with an almost eyewatering vibrancy - that nowhere else in the world seems able to replicate.  Just as well that Chablis continues to be such great value: you can pick up a Premier Cru for the price of some of the least expensive white Burgundy.  And you can buy a top Grand Cru for the price of a basic Meursault.

The distinctive nature of Chablis comes from its cool climate with a long ripening season and from the underlying Kimmeridgian limestone - a rock layer full of Jurassic fossils that also surfaces in Sancerre and Dorset.  Most Chablis sees no oak ageing, although a few winemakers recognise that some of their Premier and Grand Cru wines benefit from being treated like white Burgundy from further south, with subtle barrel influence.
