About Domaine Louis Michel
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.
92(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2014
Bright pale yellow. Flinty minerality and earth on the nose, with a hint of citrus zest in the deep background. Dense and rich but unforthcoming and austere, with stony mineral and oyster shell flavors complicated by a sea breeze salinity. Quite backward today (these grand crus were bottled two months before my early-June visit), finishing with a lemony nuance, a suggestion of youthful bitterness and a late hint of almond. This will need extended bottle aging.
