The wines from Defaix are characterised by that purity of fruit which is at the very heart of first class Chablis.
Domaine Defaix is located in the tiny
hamlet of Milly, just outside the village of Chablis, in the most
northerly part of the region. It is one of the oldest, and
certainly one of the finest domaines, where the Defaix family has
been tending vineyards for over 250 years.
Starting in 1959 with just 2 hectares, Didier´s
father Bernard Defaix spent considerable effort building and
enriching the Domaine, which is now 26 hectares - much of it in
prime 1er Cru and Grand Cru vineyards.
Today the domaine is run by sons Sylvain and
Didier and is officially certified as organic. In its quest to
produce the highest quality, most characterful and most distinctive
Chablis inBurgundy, Domaine Defaix has recently started
dabbling with biodynamic techniques also.
