The last official premier cru list was established in 1986. There are 79 named plots covering about 1483 acres. The Chablis producers decided to regroup them to promote only 17. The vineyards producing premiers crus are located on both sides of the Serein River around the villages of Chablis, Fontenay, Maligny, Chichee, La Chapelle-Vaupelteigne, Courgis, Fleys and Beines.
On the left bank of the Serein, in the middle of the slope, located southwest of Chablis, the 260 acres of the Vaillon Premier Cru are particularly well-exposed and enjoy an excellent reputation.
