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. The house style has not changed. It remains clean, ultra-pure, with bright steely acidity and not so much as a hint of oak. Delicious when young, they can also age gracefully, as older bottles from Jean's personal cellar testify.​
Winery notes
"The grape grows in a vineyard of 1 hectare under the appellation Chablis, which is 50 years of age and extremely well exposed to the sun. The 
winemaking of this vintage highlights the full character of the terroir. 25% of this wine is fermented and aged in oak barrels with regular "batonnage" over 12 months. The remaining 75% is fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks on fine lees over the same time period. The final blend offers a rich, full-bodied wine whose delicate bouquet occasionally denotes hints of honeysuckle. Ideal with fish and grilled poultry."
90/100 Allen Meadows, ​Burghound, October 2016​ (2014 Vintage)
"​(from 45+ year old vines that see 20% oak but no new wood or cold stabilization). There is a whiff of wood present on the expressive nose that offers up notes of algae, iodine, white peach and seaweed. As is usually the case with this wine there is excellent size, weight and mid-palate density to the medium-bodied flavors that brim with dry extract on the textured and lingering finale. This is a terrific and ageworthy villages that is highly recommended."
