Chablis Grand cru les Preuses

The Grand Cru les Preuses is located at the north-western tip of the Grands Crus, on a steep, south-facing slope, benefiting from the summer sun until the evening.

Its name, “Les Preuses” comes from the word “pierreuse”, due to its location near an ancient Roman road. Its Kimmeridgian clay-limestone soil makes it a noble Chablis terroir.
