Domaine Bernard Defaix Bourgogne Aligoté
- Burgundy, France
Bottled. Stony, smoky and a very slight note of spiced pear. That lovely spice on the palate too. Creamy texture. Moderate depth.
16/20 Julia Harding, jancisrobinson.com
Most of Côte Châlonnaise is known for good-value red wines but in Rully the stars are the whites, with a disproportionately high percentage (a third) being 1er Cru.
Domaine Jaeger-Defaix produces three whites and two reds, all 1er Cru and north in Chablis Didier’s family also produce impressive, great value Chablis.
