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.
90 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2012
Good bright, pale yellow. Pure, subtle nose melds peach, pineapple and white flowers. Showing less body than the Forets but well-integrated acidity gives precision to the middle palate. Fresh, citrussy flavors carry through to the lightly saline, dusty finish, which shows sneaky persistence. Very successful for this bottling, which Gicqueau-Michel told me he often finds a bit rustic.
