Tasting Notes

Low-yielding old vines reveal themselves in a concentrated rich style with wonderful aromas of flint and creamy apple. The palate has delicate floral hints and a touch of honey to balance the steely backbone. Long-lived, traditional Chablis.

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 and nephew Guillaume, his winery is small but perfectly formed and has benefited from a recent 1m euro investment. His wine-making is meticulous and the wines are benchmarks for the region. They are fastidious about producing wines which reflect the very particular terroirs of Chablis with vines on both Portlandien and Kimmeridgien soil, concentrated, mineral and very precise wines. Their 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

Low yielding vines grow on north facing kimmeridgian and chalky clay soils surrounding the village of Beine. From here Bernard selects parcels with a minimum age of 50 years for his Chabils Vieilles Vignes. Grapes are hand-harvested.

In the winery

Short cold maceration and gentle pneumatic pressing the wine is racked and fermented in stainless steel for 15 days at 21ºC. 15% is fermented in large(600l) oak barrels for 15 days and remains in oak for 8-12 months. The malolactic fermentation last up to 5 weeks.

Food Recommendations

The perfect match for Burgundian cheeses such as Epoisses.
