HISTORY

The Domaine du Colombier has been a family property since 1887, handed down over several generations.

 

In 1957 Mr Guy MOTHE started to specialize in vinifying Chablis.

Today his three sons, Jean-Louis, Thierry and Vincent work the 55 hectares of vines.

These vines are planted exclusively to Chardonnay, and produce dry white wines that are clear, lively and light, with a yellow robe characterized by hints of subtle white-green.


The Domaine started to sell in bottle in the middle of the 1980’s. Today it produces 430 000 bottles of which 80% are exported.

 

The Domaine du Colombier vinifies the 4 Appellations of Origin permitted in Chablis.
