Chablis wine has a "northern" taste with mineral, citrus, and floral notes. The aroma is dominated by white berries and green apple, with hints of lemon and lime. The aged wines have sweet and nutty notes, with aromas of dried fruit, zest, and candied fruits. The wine is classified into four categories:
- Chablis - Classic wines from 20 villages that have been producing these wines since 1938. They have a fresh aroma and reach their full flavor after 2-3 years of aging in bottles.
- Petit Chablis - Produced from grapes harvested on the periphery of the region. They are pleasant, simple, and light.
- Chablis Premier Cru - Includes about 40 slopes with their own vineyard names. They are included in a special register and have the right to indicate this inscription on the label.
- Chablis Grand Cru - Only seven vineyards are entitled to this inscription.
