Domaine Bernard Defaix

Fourth generation from a family of vine-growers, Bernard Defaix started with 2 ha in 1959. From this period, a method to protect the vineyard against spring frost was discovered. Thanks to this, the vine-growers could be sure to have a minimum of harvest every year and so they began to develop stable trade markets. 
Today, brothers Didier and Sylvain oversee the vineyard and winemaking efforts, producing an impressive fleet of wines. As of the 2016 vintage, they offered a Petit Chablis, two Chablis, five Premier Cru Chablis, and two Grand Cru Chablis, as well as a Bourgogne Rouge, an Aligote and a Sauvignon Blanc.
For many years yet, Bernard Defaix has moved towards sustainable and more ecological farming. Organic farming is the logical result of all this work.
So often, Chardonnay requires a certain mood. Chablis does not. Any season, any night of the week, any occasion, you're game for a bottle of it.

Perhaps that’s why we love the wines I’ve sampled from Bernard Defaix. Easy-to-please yet vibrant and complex, they have reliably satisfied the palate. Their standard Chablis serves as a great introduction to the area, and it is reasonably priced. But stepping up into Premier Cru territory reveals the awesome, shape-shifting qualities of Chablis. The Côte de Lechet surprises with traces of almonds and creme brûlée, and it takes on a more roasted complexion as the bottle opens up. If the expression of terroir is the ultimate goal of French wine, then the wines of Bernard Defaix qualify as gold medalists.

Domain Bernard Defaix是葡萄種植者家族的第四代傳人,始於1959年的2公頃土地。此後,他們發現了一種保護葡萄園免受春季霜凍的方法。因此,Bernard Defaix可以確保每年最少的收穫,開始建立穩定的貿易市場。

如今,迪迪埃(Didier)和西爾文(Sylvain)兄弟管理著葡萄園和釀酒工作,生產出令人印象深刻的葡萄酒。截至2016年份,他們擁有一個Petit Chablis,兩個Chablis,五個Premier Cru Chablis和兩個Grand Cru Chablis,以及勃艮第紅葡萄酒,阿里高特(Aligote) 和長相思(Sauvignon Blanc)。多年來,Bernard Defaix一直致力於可持續發展和更加生態化的農業邁進。Bernard Defaix的葡萄酒就是有機耕作的結果。
霞多麗經常需要配合某種心情。夏布利沒有。在任何季節,一周的任何夜晚,任何場合,您都在爭奪一瓶。也許這就是為什麼我們喜歡我從Bernard Defaix採樣的葡萄酒的原因。易於使用,但充滿活力且複雜,他們已經滿足了您的口味。

他們標準的夏布利(Chablis)是該地區的絕佳代表,而且價格合理。但是在進入Premier Cru的領域時,可以看到夏布利(Chablis)令人敬畏的,高端的品質。Côtede Lechet令人驚奇的是杏仁和焦糖布丁的味道,當瓶子打開時,它呈現出更烤的膚色。如果說風土的表達是法國葡萄酒的最終目標,那麼Domain Bernard Defaix的葡萄酒就是金牌得主。
