This lavoir, or wash house, used to be where the residents of Chablis would go to wash their clothes in the river. Located in the city center, this wash house was built in the 19th century. The washerwomen were protected from the weather by a roof in the shape of a 'half- rotunda' carried by a framework backing against a wall in stones. To avoid pollution, a wall separates the source from the annular trough used for washing at the lavoir. Fireplaces around the laundry area produce the ash used for cleaning. The wash house has been classified as a historic monument since 1920. This wash house was built in stone on the edge of the Serein, which supplied the mill of the city. The wash house's facade is made up of nine arches out of stone, the whole is reflected in a water arm lined with trees, and in the summer there are beautiful flower boxes, well filled, which enhance this wash house site well.

Grand Cru Chablis vary widely in taste, depending on the climate and wine-making technique. Some producers opt to oak-age Chablis, which adds a savory unctuousness to Chablis that can be both oily and smoky. The fruit in the Grand Cru wines range from intense orange-rind, apricot and passion fruit to more savory aged flavors of bruised apple and peanut shell. Again, the taste of a Grand Cru Chablis is highly dependent on the producer, so look into tasting notes carefully to find what you want. Enjoy with shellfish, crab and lobster.
Petit Chablis is a brilliant pale gold, the color of rye-straw, sometimes flecked with green. Its aromas are of white flowers (may, acacia) mixed with citrussy notes (lemon, grapefruit) over a mineral base. Notes of peach and other white-fleshed fruits are sometimes encountered. The mouth is light and lively with well-balanced acidity. Enjoy with oysters, raw fish, and prawns. Freshness, body and persistence come together to form a harmonious whole. The wine is drunk young, ideally after two years.
From the more mineral, which are closed when younger, to the more floral, which develop delicate, subtle aromas, the Climats of Chablis Premier Cru enchant the palate. Behind their pale golden appearance, the nose does not immediately express all its potential, and requires a little aeration. This is a wine for ageing, from five to 10 years. Premier Cru Chablis AOPs have slightly richer fruit profiles with starfruit and lemon flavors along with stronger distinct flinty minerality. Enjoy with shellfish and lobster.
