This Domaine has been in the Mothe family since 1887. Starting in 1957, Jean-Louis’ father, Guy Mothe, started to specialize in vinifying Chablis. The domaine began bottling and selling their wines under their own name the 1980s. Today, Guy’s three sons, Jean-Louis, Theirry and Vincent tend 142 acres covering the Chablis, Petite Chablis, 1er and Grand Cru appellations. The Mothe family works rigorously in their vineyards to ensure that all the grapes entering the cellars are perfectly ripe and in prime condition. The Domaine practices sustainable agriculture (“culture raisonnée”) which is very close to Organic practices. Chemical products are only used as a very last resort. Vinification is undertaken in the traditional Burgundy fashion and only the Grand Cru wines spend time in oak barrels.
