Dom Louis Michel Chablis 2013 375ml Product #29453 (In Stock)
Dom Louis Michel Chablis 2013 375ml Dom Louis Michel Chablis 2013 375ml

Half Bottle. Guillaume Michel crafts his “village” level Chablis from seven different Chablis vineyards located on both sides of the river.  The organically farmed vines are up to 50 years of age and produce clean, ripe, succulent fruit – even in difficult vintages like 2013.  From the classic green-tinged color and modest 12.5% alcohol, you might expect this to be sharp or green tasting, but even with no oak to hide any flaws, it’s a lovely marriage of generous, ripe green and yellow apple, tangerine, and lemon/lime fruit and Chablis classic cut and salty stone minerality.  An easy wine to enjoy all by itself or with a wide range of foods, but you certainly will love it with traditional Chablis matches like oysters and clams!

"Tangerine, spice and hazelnut overtones emerge from Louis Michel's 2013 Chablis. This textured, expressive, mid-weight Chablis is an excellent choice for drinking over the next few years."  Antonio Galloni 87-88 points

"A more complex nose features notes of exotic dried yellow fruit, white flowers and a whiff of sea breeze. There is more volume and better punch to the delicious, clean and somewhat drier finish. This too will be approachable young."Allen Meadows 86-89 points

Dom Louis Michel Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons 2013 Product #29452 (In Stock)
Dom Louis Michel Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons 2013 Dom Louis Michel Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons 2013

Some of the most chalky soils in Chablis here, and you’ll taste the chalk and limestone in the wine.  Forets has more power, but Vaillons delivers fantastic tension and purity.

"The 2013 Chablis Vaillons is bright, punchy and expressive. White flowers, green pear and lemon oil jump from the glass as this expressive, wonderfully nuanced wine shows off its class and personality. The hugely appealing finish is all about direction, energy and focus."  Antonio Galloni 91-93 points

"There is good freshness to the floral, pear and apple aromas that exhibit a top note of mineral reduction. The medium weight flavors possess that wonderful element of inner mouth perfume along with subtle minerality before terminating in a detailed and lingering finish."Allen Meadows 89-91 points

Dom Louis Michel Chablis 1er Cru Forets 2013 Product #29450 (In Stock)
Dom Louis Michel Chablis 1er Cru Forets 2013 Dom Louis Michel Chablis 1er Cru Forets 2013

 

"The 2013 Chablis Forêts is a little richer and more powerful than the Montmains owing to the slightly warmer microclimate. At the same time, the heavy presence of limestone in these soils yields a wine with bright, saline-infused minerality and considerable steely tension."  Antonio Galloni 90-92 points

"Here too there are notes of mineral reduction on the citrus, apple and algae suffused nose. The generous yet refined medium-bodied flavors possess good mid-palate concentration as well as a lovely bead of minerality that continues onto the clean, refreshing and saline finish. This isn't quite as refined as the Montmains but it compensates by displaying a bit more minerality and persistence."Allen Meadows 88-91 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 2012 Product #29472 (In Stock)
Dom Louis Michel Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos 2012 Dom Louis Michel Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos 2012

"Here the nose is reduced and exhibiting enough SO2 to warrant decanting the wine if you're going to try a bottle young. Otherwise there is superb intensity and striking minerality to the rounded big-bodied flavors that possess excellent mid-palate concentration before terminating in a bitter lemon and youthfully austere finish. I like the persistence and if this can add more depth than my score envisions I could be overly conservative."Allen Meadows 92 points

"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."International Wine Cellar 92+ points
