"The 2015 Chablis, matured entirely in stainless steel, has a vivacious lemon curd scented bouquet with plenty of cold stone/granitic aromas coming through with aeration. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, fine tension and a spice-tinged finish that lingers nicely. Very fine for a Chablis. You cannot go wrong here." Wine Advocate Magazine
"Rich, leesy nose; with rounded fruit on the palate, full and ripe, as you would expect from the vintage, but with good balancing acidity." Decanter Magazine
Screwcap. Certified organic. Defaix's Chablis is drawn from a mosaic of organically tended parcels of mature vines, situated around Milly and Poinchy in the heart of Chablis. The wine is fermented wild and aged on fine lees in glass-lined tanks. Off the bat, this opens with great energy and intensity of ripe citrus and creamy lees aromatics, leading to a super juicy, mouth-watering palate of real weight with lemon pith and crunchy white peach fruit, as well as chalky, racy, mineral freshness. Terrific vitality and clarity from start to finish, with a salty, rocky, powdery close.
