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.
Domaine de la Motte Chablis 2022
Bernard Michaut’s winery is small but perfectly formed. Following a 1m euro investment five years ago the winery is now fulfilling their dreams of producing top-flight Chablis.
Lots of lovely ripe peach and apricot aromas, caramelized apples and hot stones on the nose. Followed by generous, pronounced fruit on the palate with nectarine skins and baked peaches balanced firmly by a rounded, lemon-flesh acidity.
