Domaine Daniel-Etienne Defaix
Chablis Blanchot, Chablis Grand Cru 2007

TASTING NOTES

One of Chablis' most sought after crus, simply magnificent. A dense nose of white flowers and hay, giving way to a long and tightly packed palate of leatherwood honey, butter, crushed flower petals, digestive biscuit, liquorice root and white peach. Most attractive is an intense flint and gunsmoke character which buzzes throughout the wine's epic finish.

Domaine Daniel-Etienne Defaix

Domaine Daniel-Etienne Defaix is one of the oldest domaines in Chablis and certainly one of the finest. Based in the tiny hamlet of Milly just outside the village of Chablis, the family has been tending vineyards since 1610.  Daniel-Etienne Defaix and his son Paul-Etienne Defaix is the 14th generation).

The domaine consists of 25 hectares of vineyards, including holdings in 3 Premiers Crus vineyards and a minute parcel in the Grand Cru "Les Blanchots". Daniel Defaix is firmly in the "unoaked" camp of Chablis producers. His wines are buttery and concentrated, but never overtly rich. All of them displays a terrific purity that is the hall mark of a first-class Chablis.
