Domaine Defaix, Chablis

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.
