Domaine Adrien Defaix, Chablis 1er Cru Cote de Lechet 2020
Flinty Chablis, complex and concentrated, The wine is ripe and generous, but with beautifully poised, stony, minerally, gunflint, saline freshness.
The Premier Cru Cote de Lechet comprises 2 plots totalling 8 hectares on Kimmeridgian limestone/marl covered by fossil-rich, pebbly, calcareous topsoil. It is vinified in 75% stainless steel tanks and 25% used oak barrels and demi-muids.
We are delighted to begin a collaboration with Adrien Defiax, the young nephew of Didier Defiax (Domaine Bernard Defaix). Their wines are made at the domaine in tandem and are identical in every way.
Domaine Bernard Defaix was founded in 1959, with just two hectares and now extends to some 27 hectares in and around the village of Milly. Everything is farmed in a sustainable, ecological, organic fashion, with elements of biodynamic viticulture increasingly incorporated. They are the biggest land owners of the excellent Cote de Lechet, with some 9 hectares. This neighbouring premier cru is situated on the left/western side of the Serein, to the north of Les Vaillons.
