Domaine Jean Defaix
Domaine Jean Defaix is located in the Serein Valley - this is Chablis country! The property has been in Jean's family for four generations and he has built up a highly respected business, but his son-in-law Daniel Dampt now manages the domaine, making wines under his own name, and that of his father-in-law. Daniel is one of the most celebrated producers of Chablis wines and his two sons, Vincent and Sebastian, who have gained experience in New Zealand and Australia, now work with him crafting wines in the Dampt-Defaix family tradition. 30 hectares are under vine spread through five sites, 16 in AOC Chablis, and 14 in Premier Cru vineyards (including Côte de Léchet, Vaillons, Les Lys, Beauroy and Fourchaume). At Jean Defaix oak is eschewed to craft flawless representations of the classic Chablis style - pure and elegant with steely minerality, embodying everything anyone would want in a glass of Chablis!
