About Louis Michel & Fils
In six generations of winemaking here in Chablis, the Michel family has developed a no nonsense approach. You won't find the distracting presence of oak in these immaculate Chardonnays, because no wood is used in their cellaring.
88 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2010
($23) Pale green-tinged color. Aromas of orange zest, nutmeg and mace. Sweet and exotic but with good verve to the soft citrus flavors. Finishes dry and firm, with a strong kick of acidity and a note of lemon skin. This later bottling of Michel's village wine needs a year or two of patience. (Incidentally, I also tried the last bottling of Michel's 2008 Petit Chablis, which is from a vineyard on the plateau behind Valmur, and found this cuvee to be a bit more serious and minerally than the early bottling I sampled last spring; this one rated 88 points.)
