Though traces of a village dating back to the Neolithic period have been found, the true origins of Chablis go back to Roman times. Its name is said to have come from the Latin term “caplum”, meaning “ford”. Vines flourished here in the 3rd century, after having been rehabilitated by the emperor Probus. The Serein river, which played an important role in regulating the climate, also allowed wines from Chablis to be transported to Auxerre and Paris. From the capital, they were shipped abroad, to Flanders and England in particular.
Serve With: This wine will perfectly emphasize any type of sea food such as a fatty fish (salmon or bluefin tuna), sushi and sashimi.
