The well-to-do but sleepy town of Chablis has made its fortune growing, ageing and marketing the dry white wines that bear its name. Chablis is made exclusively from Chardonnay grapes and is divided into four Appellations d’Origine Contrôlées: Petit Chablis, Chablis, Chablis Premier Cru and, most prestigious of all, Chablis Grand Cru. The seven grands crus, lovingly grown on just 1 sq km of land on the hillsides northeast of town, are Blanchot, Bougros, Les Clos, Grenouilles, Preuses, Valmur and Vaudésir. Vineyard walks from Chablis include the Sentier des Grands Crus and the Sentier des Clos.
