Fourth generation winemaker Bernard Defaix established his Domaine in 1959. Bernard’s two sons Sylvain & Didier oversee operations today which stretch over 27 hectares including three Premier Cru vineyards (Côte de Léchet, Vaillons and Lys) and others in the Chablis and Petit Chablis appellations. After many years moving towards sustainable and more ecological farming practices, the vineyards were officially certified organic in 2009. Known for creating truly elegant wines, they produce exclusively Chablis, and are widely considered to be one of the finest producers in the region today.
