90 Points, Decanter

Cool and crisp with plenty of acidity on show here. Lacks a little richness and concentration at the moment, I suspect this just needs a little more time in bottle to add extra complexity. A mineral, fresh and vibrant example. Given the quality of Domaine Bernard Defaix, I suspect this will warrant a higher score in the future.

Winemaker Notes

We cultivate 8 hectares of this Premier Cru located on the slopes of the village Milly and on the right backs of the river Serein. We are the biggest owners of this cru. When some of the plots were planted, we found impressive fossils of Exogyra virgula that had been perfectly preserved. The remarkable stony and sunny soil is captured in this powerful and complex wine. It flourishes with age and expresses mineral aromas reminiscent of gunflint. The Côte de Lechet is indeed one of the Premiers Crus of the Chablisian vineyard with the most exceptional ageing potential.
