Domaine des Hâtes
Domaine des Hates is a family estate located in the north-west sector of Chablis in the village of Maligny, run by Pierrick Laroche, Chablisien winner of the 2021 Young Talent Trophy from the Burgundy Report. Under the direction of its young winemaker, Domaine des Hates is committed to sustainable practices – discontinuing the use of pesticides and minimizing fungicides. The winery’s cellars are built into the side of a hill, enabling much of the work to be done by gravity. Vinifications are done classically in stainless steel tanks with some of the Premier and Grand Cru wines aged in used barrels for a small portion of each cuvée where the wines undergo full malolactic.
Butteaux is a climat of the Montmains vineyard, one of the most famed Chablis 1er Cru vineyards, located just below Vaillons. Open to the wind, it is known as one of the coolest 1er Cru sites, and as such grapes are harvested later than neighbouring sites.
“Second vintage. This a domaine wine, also all barrel more than half in large formats. A small volume from these vines as there’s plenty of court-noué – about 40 hl/ha. Had this since 2019 from an uncle – nearly 3 hectares extra. This is the first part of Butteaux as you leave Chablis next to Forets… This has a width that implies a finer texture, faintly warmer-spiced. Hmm – this is mouth-filling, generous, wine – but with clarity and a finely mobile flavour. The oak is modifying the flavour to an extent so give this a couple of years in the cellar before attacking – so despite how delicious it already is – this could become an even greater wine.”
