Blue Clay in Chablis wine?

Question: After a recent WSET session some of us were discussing soils in Chablis and blue clay was mentioned. Don’t know what cru Chablis has blue clay and hope you can help me?

Answer: Clever question. Yes those Kimmeridgian soils dominate the top Chablis properties but the fully south-east facing Grand Cru Blanchot has some special blue clay in the subsoil there.
