These are classic Chablis wines with admirable minerality and finesse. Bernard Defaix, fourth generation of a family of wine-growers, started this domaine in 1959 with 2 hectares. At about this time, new techniques for protecting vineyards from spring frosts were discovered. Over the years, Bernard and his wife Monique have acquired new land. Their efforts duly enriched the domaine which is now regarded as one of the finest in the Chablis Region. In 2009 Domaine Bernard Defaix was officially certified organic, a further move towards wine-making in the tradition of bygone generations. True to family tradition, the responsibilities for the running of the domaine has now passed to Bernard's two sons, Sylvain and Didier.
