Bernard Defaix
Bernard Defaix makes very fine wines in Chablis that are often based around his Premier and Grand cru lots, some of which are little more than half an acre in size. Blending these different parcels takes care and skill, but the results show that there is plenty of both in Bernard. This is elegant and yet engaging in the mouth, with textural qualities normally only found in far superior wines. Flavours develop into light blossom, apple and herbaceousness that reward being tasted on their own as much as they benefit the company of food. This is Chablis that takes a new direction and achieves another level of quality altogether.
