Definitions for "Chablis"
a white wine resembling Chablis{1}, but made elsewhere, as in California.
White french wine made from the chardonnay grape in the northern section of Burgundy. While Chablis has something of a poor connotation with American wine drinkers due to many years of not very interesting wines being produced in California under it's name, real Chablis can be a quite marvelous, age worthy wine.
A town and wine region in the northernmost sector of Burgundy (east of Paris) known for steely, minerally Chardonnay. The name "Chablis" has also been used on bottles of generic-quality American-grown white wine with no connection to the French region (see foreign branding).
