This wine is a stunning example of how Chablis can age for more than a decade. Any fan of Chablis that hasn't had the opportunity to experience a Chablis with age should try this wine. Defaix holds wines back for late release for the impatient who don't want to hold a wine for 15 years prior to pulling the cork.
After 15 years, it is not the least bit tired. It has excellent acidity, balanced with citrus fruit, and a dry, stony finish that lingers on the palate for nearly a minute.
