This is a powerful and complex Chablis 1er Cru. It blossoms after aeration and expresses typical mineral aromas of flint and gunflint. A magnificent bottle which knows perfectly how to put forward the terroir!more reviews

A benchmark Premier Cru of the Bernard Defaix domaine with amazing balance and precision!
The perfect expression of balance in this wine aged in barrels for 16 months. This reserve wine expresses the strength of the Côte de Lechet. The nose combines the elegance of flowers with the mineral intensity of the terroir. The mouth is fleshy, powerful and voluminous, with blended woody support and an impeccably-chiselled minerality that brings a lot of energy and length.

An excellent Chablis! Beautiful minerality and very nice floral notes! A sure value! Tasted with scallops and risotto, the perfect match!

Nice Chablis.
Medium intensity nose of green apple, butter, lime peel, tangerine,wet stone and hints of vanilla and minerals.
Medium+ acidity, medium+ creamy body, medium flavour intensity, medium+ mineral finish.
Good structure and balance and quite good ageing potential.

Rather surprised to see such a cheap 1er cru. I was expecting something rather bland. And I am pleasantly surprised. On the nose, there is no doubt that it is a Chablis. And on the palate it is excellent. Perfectly controlled acidity.

DOMAINE BERNARD DEFAIX

It was in 1959 that Bernard Defaix settled in the Chablis region, in a 2 hectare vineyard. The fourth generation of a family of winegrowers, he directly experienced the techniques for protecting the vineyard against spring frosts. Bernard Defaix has thus been able to ensure a minimum harvest each year and has therefore been able to develop in stable commercial markets. Today, Bernard's two sons are in charge of the Domaine: Sylvain and Didier.
