Expressing the purity of Chablis wines through video

Every year, the Bourgogne Wine Board (BIVB) organizes a competition entitled When Pure Chablis meets Art, for young artists to express their vision of the purity of Chablis wines. In 2015, the competition was dedicated to Food Design. Anna Cellamare and Maria Ghetti, students that year at the Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts in Brussels, won over the jury with their animation.

The prototype they made back then gave rise to this wonderfully poetic short film. Their fun and informative video combines fruit, plants, and flowers to symbolize the aromatic palettes that are unique to each of the four Chablis AOCs.

The film explains the notion of Kimmeridgian soil and explores the aromas of the Chablis appellations.
