What is also interesting to note is that the Defaix family has been making their wines in this style for more than 4 centuries in one of the most prestigious and ancient sites in what is now known as the Chablis region of Burgundy. Daniel Etienne himself is the 15th generation of the Defaix family that continues the tradition of creating age worthy Chablis.

Domaine Daniel-Etienne Defaix Chablis Vieilles Vignes 2017 is a great way to get introduced to the amazing style of Chablis wines. The wine is made from Chardonnay grapes from 50 year old vines. The wine's aroma is refreshing and clean with notes of lime zest and toast. Flavors of lemon peel and nuances of flint reveal themselves on the palate. Extended lees aging is also evident with the wine's creaminess and medium body. The finish is quite lengthy with additional notes of chalk and spice.
