Domaine Bernard Defaix Chablis 2016


“I've noted this before, it bears repeating: The quality of the Defaix wines now puts the domaine among the top 10 in Chablis.” Allen Meadows, Burghound.com

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.
