Domaine Jaeger-Defaix, Chalonnaise

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 red.  

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.
