“I’ve noted this before, it bears repeating. The quality of the Defaix wines now puts the domaine among the top 10 in Chablis.” – Allen Meadows, Burghound

The fourth generation from a family of vine-growers, Bernard Defaix started with two hectares in 1959. Bernard two sons took over in the 1990’s and have been managing the domain for twenty years.

The vineyards stretches over 27ha of Chablis 1er cru Cotes de Lechet, les Lys and Vaillons as well as Chablis ac villages and Petit Chablis.

In 2009 the vineyards were officially converted into organic farming and received the official Ecocert certification.

As Didier Defaix puts it, ““In order to make good wines, you need good grapes.” That’s why the first step for successful wine making is the work in the vineyard. The training of the vines on organic farming with a very rigorous follow-up enables the grapes to reach their peak level of maturity and expression.

“The goal is to preserve and enhance the characteristics of each vineyard and to let them express themselves into our precise, pure and mineral wines.” Héléne Defaix.
