Chablis 1er Cru Les Lys, Domaine Daniel-Etienne Defaix, Burgundy, France 2009

Chablis, France


Tasting Notes

This wine reveals its poor soil and its traditional mineral notes. The fatness of the wine gives a buttered end with ripe fruits. The wine pairs perfectly with Bresse chicken or veal with cream and morels.VITICULTUREThe natural growing process is only interfered with when there is no other choice. For example, fertilisation with natural compost will only take place when absolutely necessary. Absolutely no treatment is done in the vineyards within two months of the harvest. The grapes are harvested when they are at a good level of maturity. Followed by careful sorting where all the green and unhealthy grapes are removed.VINIFICATIONThe wine is pressed very slowly, whcih takes about three hours. It is then left to settle for 18 hours before the fermentation. Alcoholic fermentation with natural yeast at 18ºC for three weeks in stainless steel tanks.Goes through malolactic fermentation.
