Jean Defaix inherited a fourth generation estate and has built an enviable reputation for top quality domaine-bottled Chablis. He has now handed over management of the estate to his equally able son-in-law Daniel Dampt.
Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"The grapes come from one of our oldest vineyards, planted in 1955 by Bernard Defaix and exceptionally well exposed to the sun (S-SE). This “cuvée” is partially fermented in oak barrels. Half of the wine is fermented in barrels and remains for 12 months on fine lees with regular "batonnage". After tasting, this wine aged in barrels is blended with the same“cuvée” that has been aged in stainless steel tanks. The final blend is bottled 18 months after the harvest. This “cuvée” Reserve conveys all of the Côte de Lechet's power. The bouquet marries floral elegance with the mineral intensity of the terroir. The palette is characterised by roundness, plenitude, richness and length. Excellent when served with salmon or other fish delicacies."
91/100 Allen Meadows, Burghound,​ October 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"(from 50+ year old vines aged in 40% oak though none of it is new). Relatively generous wood stops short of dominating the nose that is similar to that of the regular cuvée with the exception that the petrol character is more pronounced. The bigger and more concentrated flavours deliver good length on the sappy, succulent and mouth coating finale. This is a quality effort with excellent intensity though the wood is not subtle.
