Chablis 2020 Bernard Defaix

Variety: Chardonnay 100%

Straw yellow.

The nose has clean and precise aromas. Citrus fruits characterize it with finesse, followed by fresh fruit and gentle flowers. The notes of sea, salt and that wind that brings them enrich it on the finish.

On the palate it is pushed by hardness to show itself well structured both for the current pleasantness, but also for the evolution over time. The volume and creaminess of the softness are adequate for harmony and balance between the parts. , Persistent memory between aromas of grapefruit, fruit and iodine.

Excellent interpretation of chardonnay in Chablis, where structured and complex wines are produced, with great capacity to evolve magnificently over time.

Chablis 2020 Bernard Defaix

Bernard Defaix,, together with his two sons Sylvain and Didier, represent the third and fourth generation of winemakers. They own 25 hectares in the Chablis appellation. Eleven are in Premier Cru, Côte de Lechet, Les Vaillons and Les Lys, 12 hectares of Chablis and 2 hectares of Petit Chablis.

After the harvest, alcoholic fermentation takes place exclusively in stainless steel containers. In the following six months the yeasts are put back in suspension, and normally remain in the wine for a period ranging from 8 to 12 months. During this period the wine remains exclusively in stainless steel containers.

They cultivate the vines following the organic principles, even if in some vineyards they have lost the certification, because in the 2017 vintage, after two other difficult years, they were forced to some treatments in excess of those required by the organic certification. They have not used herbicides for decades to increase the presence of beneficial insects. In some cases they use the technique of sexual confusion, distributing pheromones in the vineyards. By doing so, they prevent the males of harmful insects from finding the females to fertilize them and consequently, from depositing their eggs for their proliferation.
