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.
89-91 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2013
(from vines more than 60 years of age): Good bright pale yellow. Lemon, lime and hints of exotic fruits on the nose, accented by acacia flower and hawthorn. Then rounder, riper and more glyceral than the regular Butteaux, with enticing floral lift to its green melon and citrus flavors. Finishes with lovely subtle length. Shows the relative fullness of Chablis from clay soil. (In comparison, the Forets is more taut.)
