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 : 01 October 2012

An expressive and highly nuanced nose of white pepper, spice, citrus, tidal pool and pear aromas is followed by complex and intense flavors that brim with dry extract. This is a relatively big Vaillons but it doesn’t lack for punch and underlying tension on the balanced and palate staining finish. This should amply reward 6 to 8 years of cellar time. (89-92)/2017+.

Rating : 89-92/100
