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 winemaking is meticulous and the wines are benchmarks for the region. They are fastidious about producing concentrated, mineral and very precise wines which reflect the particular terroirs of Chablis, with vines on both Portlandian and Kimmeridgian soils. 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.

Vineyards

The lieu-dit of Vau-Ligneau (meaning little valley) is one of Chablis' more recent promotees to Premier Crus status, elevated for consistently producing superior quality wines. Chardonnay grapes are grown on 40 year old vines in Kimmeridgian soil with a south easterly exposure (giving a more mineral style than the Premier Cru Beauroy which comes from south / south westerly vineyards). A deep layer of white clay gives the wine length, finess and elegance.

Vinification

20% of the wine is fermented in oak barrels (228l & 600l), the rest in stainless steel. The oaked proportion remains in barrel for 11 months.

Tasting Notes

Lightly toasted buttery oak on the nose, the palate is complex and mineral yet ripe with plenty of fresh Chablis acidity. A wine which merits its Tastevinage award this will be long-lived; expect at least five years' drinking.

Try with chicken richer style of fish dishes, shellfish, chicken and creamy sauce.
