Vieux Chateau Vineyard, Daniel-Etienne Defaix

Daniel, a winemaker and oenologist, is a knowledgeable and passionate man. He is passionate about the Vieux Chateau’s vines, which have existed  for eight centuries. He is passionate about traditional wine making methods already established in the sixteenth century. It was in the eighteenth century that his ancestor, Etienne-Paul du Jour de la Croix de Faix, decided to set up his business in the footsteps of the Pontigny monks through whom the Chablis appellation was born. 26 hectares of Chardonnay on the steep slopes of the south east hills, produce marvellous vintages such as two Chablis blends from old and very old vines, three Chablis first growth and two Chablis Grand Cru. The Chablis Grand Cru Grenouilles 2003, produced from old vines, is a wine full of sensuality, rich, round with a very delicate nose. It can accompany crayfish and caviar without any problem.
