Dom Louis Michel Chablis 2012 Product #27975 (In Stock)
Dom Louis Michel Chablis 2012 Dom Louis Michel Chablis 2012

Just another fantastic wine from the Chablis traditionalists at Domaine Louis Michel. We love the marriage of ripe, wide-open, Chardonnay fruit with Chablis’ crisp acidity and lingering, refreshing, wet-stone minerality.  Co-winemaker Guillaume Gicqueau-Michel loves how his 2011s “are classic but with charm as they have plenty of Chablis character but without the austerity of vintages like 2008 or 2010.” 

From first sniff, this blend of organically grown Chardonnay from 25+ year-old vines grown in several different 1er Cru vineyards screams “Chablis!”  Generous aromas of fresh-from-the-tree apple, mint, white flowers, and crushed stones jump from the glass.  The wine enters your mouth with a sense of richness and lusciousness with generous flavors of crisp apple, green fig, tangerine and lime zest followed by a big burst of mouthwatering lemon/lime acidity and salty oyster shell and chalk minerality.  The rich texture makes this delicious to sip all on its own, but it will sing with shellfish, halibut, and creamy mushroom and chicken dishes, too.  Bravo!

"There is plenty of Chablis character to the mostly green fruit and shellfish suffused nose. I like the mouth feel to the round and intense medium-bodied flavors that possess fine persistence on the clean, dry and focused finish.” Allen Meadows 88 points

Dom Louis Michel Chablis Grand Cru Grenouilles 2010 Product #26235 (In Stock)
Dom Louis Michel Chablis Grand Cru Grenouilles 2010 Dom Louis Michel Chablis Grand Cru Grenouilles 2010

"This is perhaps ever-so-slightly riper still than the Vaudésir, yet the expressive nose remains cool and fresh with aromas of white flowers, tidal pool and citrus nuances that merge gracefully into full-bodied and overtly muscular broad-shouldered flavors that also possess plenty of acid-buffering dry extract on the tight, intense and highly enduring finish. Excellent cellar potential."Allen Meadows 92-94 points

"The 2010 Chablis Grenouilles, on the other hand, is much more closed down. Today it is the wine’s crystalline minerality that comes through most clearly. Hints of jasmine, green pears and apples develop in the glass, but this is a wine that needs time before its full personality begins to emerge. It is above all else a wine of finesse and, at times, an almost feminine vulnerability. Anticipated maturity: 2014."Wine Advocate 94+ points

Dom Louis Michel Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos 2010 Product #26236 (In Stock)
Dom Louis Michel Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos 2010 Dom Louis Michel Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos 2010

"Hints of sulfur reduce the present attractiveness of the otherwise complex and well-nuanced nose that displays notes of oyster shell, white pepper and dried flowers. Like the Grenouilles, this is also very tight and backwards with its beautifully detailed and borderline painfully intense flavors that culminate in a serious, linear and palate staining finish. This impeccably well-balanced effort should also amply reward 6 to 10 years of development."Allen Meadows 92-94 points

"Michel’s 2010 Chablis Les Clos comes across as big, rich and powerful. It is rather viscous on the palate, as there was a touch of botrytis in the vineyard. In 2010, it is the vintage that speaks most loudly. I can’t say this is an especially typical Les Clos, but it is a beautiful wine if taken on its own terms. Nectarine, peaches, exotic flowers and anise meld together on the textured finish. Anticipated maturity: 2013+."Wine Advocate 93 points
