Tasting Notes: Apple, Pear, Mineral, Saline
Didier Defaix of Defaix Frères represents the 4th generation growers and the 2nd generation as an estate-bottled Domaine. The domaine was started in 1955. Since 2009, the domaine has been employing organic and sustainable methods in the vineyards and utilization of natural indigenous yeast for all fermentations.
Slightly set back from the Grands Crus vineyards, Montée de Tonnerre seems to be challenging the Climat right across from it. This Premier Cru combines essentially the best of Chablis! Including an amazing ageing potential.
Full bodied, powerful, round, finessed and complex. Typical favors of apple, mineral, pear, saline, and a touch of oak. Try with poultry or sea food.
