The Defaix family holdings have expanded since Bernard Defaix founded the estate in 1959 with two hectares. Bernard’s sons, Sylvain and Didier, now manage 27 hectares of vineyards, including in three premier cru appellations. This cuvée comes from a 12-hectare set of plots right in the heart of the Chablis growing area and expresses the characteristic brightness and rocky-stream freshness of a classic Chablis. Eight months on the fine lees before bottling imparts a smooth texture. A restrained elegance of white pear, lemon and lime on the nose gives way to a subtle creaminess on the palate, offset by persistent minerality. Organically grown, low-intervention/natural wine.
