The soil in Chablis is known as Kimmeridgean. Located in a sedimentary basin, this low-lying zone was gradually covered by the material that today make up the soil and subsoil of this wine region. One finds subsoils of gray marl which alternate with bands of limestone, sometimes very rich in fossils of Exogyra virgula, a small oyster that is characteristic of the marl from the Middle and Upper Kimmeridgean.
