We are delighted to have secured a parcel of this gem of a Pouilly Fume. Lots of fresh, herbaceous fruit with a hint of liquorice on the nose. In the mouth, there are delicious Sauvignon Blanc characteristics with citrus and gooseberry flavours.
Aromatic with clean mineral notes and hints of citrus. The palate is medium bodied with crisp, appley acidity, tight, pure fruit flavours of white peach and pears finished with a classic, steely, dry finish. Stylish.
A brilliant light yellow colour. A blend of mineral flinty aromas and very ripe fruit aromas gives a nice fresh bouquet. This wine is very pleasant on the palate, sophisticated and round at first, with a slightly acid finish which gives a beautiful freshness to the whole.
This wine is the colour of yellow gold or straw-coloured with gently glowing silvery. To the nose, its aromas suggest broom, white roses, acacia, honeysuckle, fern, verbena, lemon-grass, and citrus fruits (grapefruit, mandarin oranges). In the mouth, the finish adds nuances of pine, quince and fennel. This wine is fresh and luscious as well as dry and well-fruited. It has good concentration backed by sufficient acidity to ensure its keeping quality. It is full and smooth in character.
Daniel Dampt is one of Burgundy’s most celebrated winemarkers, and he produces wines under both his own name and that of Jean Defaix, his father-in-law. This Defaix Chablis is clean, ultra-pure with bright steely acidity and not so much as a sniff of oak. This makes it pair perfectly with fish dishes such as sea bass or oysters and it is a superb, classic wine to use as an aperitif. The Chardonnay grapes were hand-selected and bottled on the estate, ensuring that only the best fruit was used to produce the wine, making it a perfect example of the distinctive taste and freshness of Chablis. It’s never cheap, Chablis, but this is both excellent quality and value.
Pale yellow in colour. This wine has an intense and aromatic bouquet of white peach and fig. Round and bright in the mouth with a lovely acidity and notes of fresh hazelnuts on the finish. This is an elegant wine with impressive structure.
Classicaly austere nose of white stone fruit, chalk and minerals. The palate is crisp, dry and medium bodied, with steely acidity and a well defined, elegant palate. The citrus, green apple and pear fruit flavours last well into the deliciously refreshing, lengthy finish.
