Meet the Producer
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.
Sourced from old vines at least 40 years old, these lower yielding vines produce wines with more concentrated aromas and rich mouth-feel. Hand-harvested. Cool fermented in stainless steel. No oak is used.
After a rigorous selection and tasting by the Confrérie des Chevaliers de Tastevin, wines with the tastevinage label are considered the best of Burgundy.This distinctive Chablis has concentrated aromas and a richness which can only come from old vine fruit.; The palate is both round and mineral with complex, concentrated fruit and excellent balance. This will continue to develop over the next five years.
