While most Petit comes from the low-lying sites on Portlandian limestone to the north of Chablis, the Defaix wine comes from organically tended vines with their roots drilling down through the classic Kimmeridgian soils. You can taste the difference. With juicy apple and stone fruit aromas and flavours, pulpy texture, a vibrant, cool close, it's a wine "on the fruit" as the French would say. It reflects both the depth of the vintage and the cool soils of the region. Outstanding value.
"There is a very mild hint of lactic character to the otherwise attractive aromas of white and yellow orchard fruit. The round, supple and approachable flavors are clean, dry and easy-to-like. No bottle age will be required as this will be accessible immediately."
