Chablis, 1er Cru, Lechet Daniel Etienne Defaix 2003 

Grape variety, 100% Chardonnay on the lees for 18 months.  

Daniel Defaix makes delicious Chablis that he only releases when fully mature. He eschews wood, instead keeping the wine in stainless steel, stirring up the lees to get complex biscuity flavours, combined here with soft richness. The Defaix domaine is one of the oldest in Chablis and dates from the 13th century. Since the 18th century it has been solely concerned with producing Chablis from 25 hectares of prime vineyard sites. Daniel Defaix continues to produce excellent wines, released when mature after extended aging. 

The small town of Chablis sits in a bowl in rolling countryside half way between Beaune and Paris. The surrounding area produces green-tinged, elegant Chardonnays whose style and poise has yet to be matched anywhere in the world. The best come from the steeper premier and grand cru slopes around the town and they can age surprisingly well. Daniel Defaix at Domaine Daniel-Etienne Defaix in Milly makes very flavoursome Chablis, keeping the young wines on their lees for extended periods and releasing them when mature.
