Chablis is a relatively small district of 5,000 acres in Burgundy, but it’s definitely the most important white wine region. The special climate and the mixture of limestone and Kimmeridgen soil, with fossils of mussel and oyster shells, give the conditions that are required for great wines .
The Servin family has been in the Chablis region since 1654 and involved in the wine industry for much of that time. The estate owns 32 hectares of vines spread throughout Chablis, much of it in top vineyards.
Francois Servin runs the domaine with the assistance of his Australian brother-in-law, Mark Cameron.
The wines from Servin have very high level of quality and are very consistent, they’re also known for their affordability. Francois believes in a winemaking philosophy that incorporates traditional and modern methods.
Stainless steel tanks are used for some cuvees, but most of the wines see some wood.Steps have been taken in recent years to improve the already fine quality of the estate’s wines.
