"A slightly riper if otherwise similar nose complements richer and denser flavors that manage to be at once generous but focused, all wrapped in a clean, dry and citrusy finish. Worth considering."


The grapes grow in a vineyard of 1 hectare under the appellation Chablis, which is 50 years of age and extremely well exposed to the sun. The winemaking of this vintage highlights the full character of the terroir. 25% of this wine is fermented and aged in oak barrels with regular "batonnage" over 12 months. The remaining 75% is fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks on fine lees over the same time period. The final blend offers a rich, full-bodied wine whose delicate bouquet occasionally denotes hints of honeysuckle. This wine can be kept for 3 to 4 years before drinking. Ideal with fish and grilled poultry.
About Domaine Bernard Defaix
Fourth generation from a family of vine-growers, Bernard Defaix started with 2 ha in 1959. From this period, a method to protect the vineyard against spring frost was discovered. Thanks to this, the vine-growers could be sure to have a minimum of harvest every year and so they began to develop stable trade markets.
The domain stretches over 27 hectares : Chablis Premier Cru (Côte de Lechet, Vaillons and Lys), Chablis and Petit Chablis.

The 2009 year has brought a great change to us : we have officialized our vineyard's conversion into organic farming as we went through the official certification under the control of Ecocert.

For many years yet, we have moved towards a sustainable and more ecological farming. Organic farming is the logical result of all this work.
