Tasting Notes

Aromatic fruit with a hint of patchouli smoke on the nose. The palate has lovely weight with ripe, fleshy cooked lemons, a touch of stone fruit and a good mineral backbone. Far superior than the name "Petit" might suggest.

Producer details

Domaine de la Motte is a 25 hectare family-run winery handed down from father to son since 1950. Now under the stewardship of Bernard Michaut, an ex-chef who works with his son Adrien. Their wine-making is meticulous and the wines are benchmarks for the region. They are fastidious about producing concentrated, mineral and very precise wines which reflect particular terroirs of Chablis, with vines on both Portlandien and Kimmeridgien soil. Motte's wines are regularly chosen for the Tastevinage label - a rigorous selection by the Confrérie des Chevaliers de Tastevin of wines they regard as offering the best of the region in terms of quality and style.

In the vineyard

Vineyards are in the Hautes Côtes, at the top of the slopes just above Domaine de la Motte's Chablis classified plots and so achieve good ripeness. The soil is Portlandian, which is less chalky than Kimmeridgian, and typically produces wines which are less mineral and more fruity, well suited to earlier drinking. Having said that, Motte’s wine has real finesse with good fruit character - very much their house style.

In the winery

Cool-fermented in stainless steel, malolactic fermentation is also in stainless steel and the wine is unoaked.

Food Recommendations

This Petit Chablis is a light fruity wine that marries perfectly with oysters and all shellfish.
