|Winery||Domaine Louis Michel & Fils|
The Michel family have been passing down their love for the vineyard for 5 generations. Their philosophy is very simple: to make authentic Chablis, one is to respect the terroir to the utmost.
Domaine Louis Michel is one of the leading family-held estates in Chablis, not only in terms of production, but also in the reputation they have gained as producers of consistently high quality Chablis. The soils of the area are rich with Kimmeridgian limestone and it is in these soils, which provide a clay-limestone-marl mixture, that the full character of the wine is revealed.
The characteristics of the Chablis wines are quite distinct. These wines are regarded for their pale yet bright colors and for being dry yet fresh. In addition, they are slightly acidic, lively, and elegant. They are perhaps the purest expressions of the stony Chardonnay fruit grown on the limestone slopes of this northern Burgundy appellation. Vinified in steel tanks with no barrel aging, the objective is to make wines which reflect the distinctiveness of the vineyards from which they are produced.
