Information About Bernard Defaix

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.

Tasting Date : 15 October 2015

As is typically the case with this cuvée the wood treatment is more prominent and in this case it's enough to fight somewhat with the slightly riper aromas that consist of orange peel, apricot, white peach and subtle iodine nuances. The rich, even opulent big-bodied flavors also possess fine mid-palate concentration thanks to the copious amount of dry extract that also serves to buffer the moderately firm acid spine. This juicy yet mineral-inflected effort should also drink well young.

Rating : 89-92/100
