Dom Louis Michel Chablis 2016 Product #32918 (In Stock)
Dom Louis Michel Chablis 2016 Dom Louis Michel Chablis 2016

Year-in, year-out, this is one of the most satisfying “village” level Chablis we carry.  The estate lost about half its fruit to frost, hail, mildew and sunburn in 2016, but the grapes that made it to the winery were first rate in deed.  Key lime, apple and more waft from the glass.  As mouthfilling and powerful as the 2015 but with a nice dose of 2014’s acidity and freshness providing extra complexity and zest. This will make a fantastic “house white” this Spring – Fall and delight on its own, with shellfish, or even with savory grilled chicken.

"Here the expressive nose is similar to that of the Petit Chablis with the addition of a pretty floral component. The slightly tighter and more energetic middle weight flavors deliver fine length on the precise, dry and balanced finale where a hint of minerality surfaces. This too should drink well young."Allen Meadows 87-89 points

"This is a well-balanced wine with crisp acidity, steely texture and delicious citrus fruits. It has a bright, lively texture and will be ready to drink from summer 2018."Wine Enthusiast 89 points

Dom Louis Michel Chablis 1er Cru Montee Tonnerre 2016 Product #33059 (In Stock)
Dom Louis Michel Chablis 1er Cru Montee Tonnerre 2016 Dom Louis Michel Chablis 1er Cru Montee Tonnerre 2016

Separated from the Grand Crus of Chablis by just a narrow ravine and sharing the Grand Crus' classic Kimmeridgian soils, Montee de Tonnerre is universally acclaimed as the best 1er Cru.  And at Louis Michel, it always delivers the grip, minerality, aging potential and very near the concentration of an outstanding Grand Cru - at a fraction of the price.  It's a bit quiet now - decant if you want to drink it tonight - but already shows fantastic purity, sizzlingly fresh green and white fruit, and loads of salty, stony, minerality.  Best 2020-2026.

“Light-medium yellow. A step up in aromatic complexity from the rest of the Louis Michel premier crus, but with its shy fruit element currently overshadowed by smoky oyster-shell minerality. Similarly, the wine's stone and citrus fruit flavors are dominated in the early going by rich, saline, rocky minerality. This structured wine finishes precise, shapely, firm and long. Excellent potential here, but this will need cellaring.”  Vinous (Tanzer) 90-92 points
