About This Wine
Bottled under screwcap. Organic. Much like the rest of Burgundy, Chablis' finest vineyards have (for better or for worse) become synonymous with a symbolic grower. Mention the 1er cru Montée de Tonnerre to any Chablis lover and the first name that comes to mind is Raveneau. The same goes for the 1er cru La Forest - Dauvissat (or Moreau-Naudet!), the grand cru Preuses - Fevre, grand cru Le Clos - Raveneau again or the Moreau brothers who are the largest holders in this vineyard (and no relation to Stephane Moreau of Moreau-Naudet!) and so on. The emblematic vigneron of the1er cru vineyard Côte de Léchet, is the Domaine Bernard Defaix. They are the largest holder and benchmark growers as well as the site's only certified organic grower (as far as we know). The Defaix cellars sit just below the vines of the Léchet hill, in the tiny hamlet of Milly.
Fifteen percent of the wine was fermented and matured in old, neutral barrels, which previously housed Defaix's Reserve bottling below with the rest being reared in glass lined tanks. It's a deep, multifaceted Léchet with the layers of fleshy fruit that only the greatest Chablis vintages can deliver, beautifully balanced and lifted by the vibrant chalky freshness that this site always delivers. We think we know fine Chablis when we taste it and this Chablis is fine, fine, fine, all the way down.
