Tasting notes:

The lieu-dit of Vau-ligneau (meaning little valley) is one of the more recent Premier Crus of Chablis elevated to this status for
consistently producing superior quality wines. Domaine de la Motte's 5 hectares of vineyards lie on south-and west-facing hills,
where the soils have more clay and kimmeridgian features. 20% of the wine is fermented in oak barrels (228l & 600l), the rest in
stainless steel. The oaked proportion remains in barrel for 8-12 months. The result is a exactly what a Premier Cru Chablis
should be with a typically flinty and grassy edge to still quite primary Chardonnay fruit on the nose. This is followed by crisp,
linear flavours which have real edge and definition, filling out in mid-palate but with a long, steely finish. It will continue to develop
for up to 10 years.
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 1er cru

    I very much prefer a good white (such as this Chablis) to bubbles which are much more expensive and not necessarily better. The recipient, my cousin (a birthday boy that day) very much appreciated what you sent. And WELL DONE for writing to me in french, even if I'm scottish - I can cope! I just wish I could get your products over here :o(

    I give 4 stars only as delivery date (a birthday!) not respected, for which I share the blame in part as could have ordered earlier. Peter emailed and warned me so I was able to placate the recipient. Better late than never and very much enjoyed when it did arrive.
