Aged in stainless steel, these vineyards are located in the region of Auxerre, just outside of the famous area of Chablis. This begins with a lovely citrusy, floral nose with chalk and stone aromas; lots of apple fruit with good creamy richness and slight chalk and straw flavors on the finish; this is a very easy and refreshing wine, a crowd pleaser.   

Les Hauts de Milly is from the outstanding and well-established artisanal Chablis producer Domaine Bernard Defaix. Bernard and Monique Defaix began with 2 hectares in 1959 and today with a lot of hard work the estate owns 27 hectares in Chablis and 6 hectares in Rully (Cote de Chalonnaise). Since the late 1990’s the domaine has been managed by Bernard and Monique’s two sons Sylvain and Didier Defaix. Didier manages the vineyards while Sylvain is in charge of vinification and ageing. Helene Jaeger-Defaix, wife of Didier, is the owner of the Rully vineyards and manages the commercial aspects of the domain.

The domaine is located in the village of Milly, less than 1 kilometer NW of Chablis. The domaine was certified organic in 2009 (Ecocert). The maintenance of the soils is made by ploughing exclusively. They also use various preparations for a biodynamic approach. The wines here are impeccably made and showcase the deep limestone soils that have made Chablis world famous.
