Bernard Defaix, Chardonnay, Chablis 1er Cru, Côte de Lechet, Burgundy, France 2019 375ml
Bernard Defaix cultivates 8 hectares of this Premier Cru on the slopes of the village Milly and on the right backs of the river Serein. They are the biggest owners of this cru.
When some of the plots were planted, they 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.
To serve with fish or poultry, with white butter or cream sauces.
