CHABLIS

Chardonnay 100%

Our vines on the appellation Chablis spread over 12 hectares, situated at the heart of the Chablisian vineyard. This wine is aged in stainless steel tanks so as to respect the typicity of the appellation. Our Chablis are characterised by their freshness, power and tenacity.
Their bouquet displays a dominance of mineral notes, which are often associated with delicate touches of citrus fruit (lemon and grapefruit).
This wine can be enjoyed within 2 years, an excellent match for seafood or fish.

(Decanter 92) Chablis 2019 Domaine Bernard Defaix is a highly-rated family estate based in Milly, With the vines for this bottling averaging 30 years age. Ten months lees ageing adds to the complexity on both the nose and the palate. Refined, classy and complex characters on show here, which meld beautifully with the ripe peachy fruit notes. A very fine, expressive, distinctive Chablis which is ready to drink now but will age very well for many years. Drinking window 2021-2027

(Allen Meadows 88) 2019 Chablis:(from4 different communes).This is actually aromatically quite similar to the Petit Chablis with perhaps just a bit more freshness. The sleek and delicious medium-bodied flavors possess good if not special density while displaying fine length on the slightly drier finale. This too is lovely and worth a look.88/2023+
