Domaine Bernard Defaix 1er Cru Côte de Lechét 2013

Apologies in advance, I suspect you may end up reading here a few more Chablis reviews than in the past.  Happily this region is really rather well priced in Australia, and the quality mostly high.  As time passes, I think the styles I prefer are simply the classic styles well-made, from the Barossa to Bordeaux, right through to Chablis.

This is a particularly good example of the Côte de Lechét, which is a premier cru vineyard on the left-bank of the Serein River that is south east facing.  It has aromatics of stone and a touch of nectarine.  It has medium length on the palate, good purity of flavour, lovely balance, with reminders of stones, nectarine and a touch of honey.  G-VG
