Louis Michel & Fils

The Michel family have been passing down their love for the vineyard for 5 generations. Their philosophy is very simple: to make authentic Chablis, one is to respect the terroir to the utmost. Domaine Louis Michel is one of the leading family-held estates in Chablis, not only in terms of production, but also in the reputation they have gained as producers of consistently high quality Chablis. The soils of the area are rich with Kimmeridgian limestone and it is in these soils, which provide a clay-limestone-marl mixture, that the full character of the wine is revealed. The characteristics of the Chablis wines are quite distinct. These wines are regarded for their pale yet bright colors and for being dry yet fresh. In addition, they are slightly acidic, lively, and elegant. They are perhaps the purest expressions of the stony Chardonnay fruit grown on the limestone slopes of this northern Burgundy appellation. Vinified in steel tanks with no barrel aging, the objective is to make wines which reflect the distinctiveness of the vineyards from which they are produced.


Chablis
Chablis

The vineyard is situated in a Chablis commune that is characterized by the huge variety of soils. This classic Chablis, both fruity and mineral, expresses all the typicality of the terroir. It is a beautiful golden yellow colored wine with a subtle, elegant nose of crisp green apple, citrus fruit and hay. The nose supports the palate with lively fruit and mineral hints as well as good weight and balance with great length of flavors.

This is a golden yellow colored Chardonnay brimming with minerally richness. It has a pure, minerally nose with aromas of lemon, white pepper, acacia blossom and talc. Brisk and firm-edged with very good cut and intensity to its lemon and mineral flavors, the characteristics of the soil (leaf mulch and chalk) are well expressed in the mouth. It finishes classically dry with a juicy citric and stone quality with mineral flavors offering very good intensity and a firm finish.

A lovely pale yellow color, this wine has pear, lemon, minerals and white truffle on the fresh nose. It is juicy, intense and rather powerful, but not at all overripe, with notes of pear, flowers and mint. It is powerful but rounded on the palate. Fruit weight, balance and flavor complexity are the hallmarks of this great wine with a surprisingly long, dry finish.

Sweet and spicy with pure and focused fruit aromas of nectarine and dried apricot accented with light floral notes and dense minerality. It is complex and voluminous on the palate. This wine is bright, pale yellow in color with a highly complex nose. It is very suave on entry, then concentrated and rather powerful in the middle, with terrific thrust and classically dry but rich citrus and stone flavors. Hints of white peach and creamy hazelnut linger on the finish.
