Domaine de la Motte Chablis ‘Jardin du Curé’ is grown on Kimmeridgian Clay soils, on south and south-eastern facing slopes in the commune of Beine. This 1.5 hectare plot of vines with an average age of 40 years old only produces about 9000 bottles per year. After traditional vinification and fermentation at 18 degrees, the wine is aged for 9 months with 66% in steel tanks and 33% in 600l oak vessels.
The flavour profile of this sits somewhere in between the Chablis and Petit Chablis from Domaine de la Motte. It has a restrained savoury, citrus and herbal nose followed by greater intensity on the palate. Cooked lemons, green apples and a stoney minerality are complemented by a nice citrus acidity to the end with a lovely clean finish.
Enjoy with chicken in a creamy sauce, Thai dishes, or simply cooked fish with a green salad, essentially anything that calls for a clean, crisp Chablis.
