Guy Mothe built up his successful domaine in Fontenay-pres-Chablis by starting with a small parcel he inherited and acquiring additional small parcels of land that came up for sale over the years. Today the domaine is run by Guy`s son, Vincent, and the style remains unchanged. Vincent's take on Chablis is always unoaked with an emphasis on minerality and purity.

It is all simplicity and no fuss. The Mothes are a farming as well as a viticultural family, also raise cattle, have wheat and other crops. The viticulture is sustainable, and the vinification lucid and simple with a beautifully organized and very modern winery. They have close to thirty hectares of vines; vinify their parcels of Chablis villages to the taste of their customers. The Chablis is raised in impeccable stainless steel tanks – cleanliness in the winery is very important for this Domaine. The winery is kept at a cool temperature. Russell and I met them at a Beaune wine and cheese event and were delighted with the clarity of the appellations.
