Domaine de la Motte Chablis Cuveé Vieilles Vignes 2008

I was sent this wine in the post from Burgundy Wines (I think), as a result of not being able to honour an invitation to the 24th Annual Chablis Contest in London. In a remarkable coincidence, it happened to be the wine of a producer that I had recently discovered.

The producer is Domaine de la Motte, and I recently blogged about one of their Premier Cru wines.

This wine, the cuveé Vieilles Vignes, is not a Premier Cru but it is still a wine of quality. It has a rich, almost meaty nose, and a very fresh, crisp acidic palate. I think this may be one for the cellar.

I wouldn't say I'm a huge Chablis fan - I prefer oaked Chardonnay which isn't the norm in Chablis. If I want a crisp, refreshing white wine there are lots of other wines I'd go to first, but the wines of this producer impress me.
