Lots of lovely ripe stone fruit aromas and hot stones on the nose. Followed by generous, pronounced fruit on the palate with nectarine skins and a soft acidity.

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.

Grapes are machine harvested to preserve the freshness and purity of flavour. Pneumatic pressing immediately after harvest is then followed by a gravity settling period of 24 hours in stainless steel vats. Fermentation takes place in thermo-regulating stainless steel tanks for approximately 15 days at 21 degrees Celsius. The wine then undergoes malolactic fermentation in stainless for approximately 5 weeks at 20 degrees. Following this, the wine is racked between December to January, and it is fined between February and March. Cold stabilisation at -3 degrees for 5 days before filtration and finally bottling.

Will be great with chicken in a creamy sauce, Thai dishes, or simply cooked fish with a green salad.

Cracking village-level AOC Chablis

Proper Lemon-Green in colour, the nose has medium intensity of green apples, peachy stone fruit, flint and wet stone, bready, and a pastry-like baked goods. Think an unripe pear tart.

On the palate; citrus, pear, peach, medium+ acidity, and a rich, round, creamy mouthfeel/body from the malolactic - definitely not thin and steely, like some village-level Chablis. A decent length finish and not overblown at 12.5%.

Well-balanced, reasonably complex, but could do with a bit more fruit intensity. Very good.
