The wines from Defaix are characterised by that purity of fruit which is at the very heart of first class Chablis.
In October 2002, Hélène Jaeger-Defaix,
Didier Defaix's wife, took over her first
vineyard in Rully 1er cru Mont-Palais white (South Burgundy) from
her great-aunt Henriette Niepce.
In 2003, she added a second plot of Rully 1er Cru
Rully's estate is managed in the same spirit as the vineyard in
Chablis - that is with the respect of the environment and with the
expression of the terroirs as main goal.
