Domaine Louis Michel & Fils Chablis 2018
This Chablis reveals white fruit notes such as peach, and has a persistent mineral structure. In the mouth, a stony sensation which is so typical of Chablis makes this a round and pure wine from Domaine Louis Michel & Fils.
Vinified and Matured in stainless steel tanks, for at least 8 months. No added yeast, long fermentation using indigenous yeasts, in temperature-controlled vats. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation. Matured for 6 to 10 months. In stainless steel tanks, with the least possible handling. Long moderately cold stabilization. Fining using bentonite if necessary. The wine is gently filtered once before bottling.
The grapes come from eight different areas, which are mainly located on the left bank of the Serein river, Pargues in the Forêts valley, and Vaillons. They are blended with the parcel located just below the Montée de Tonnerre, to create this authentic Chablis.
AWARDS & ACCOLADES
Charming white flowers and chalky, mineral notes; firm and weighty with a saline, citrus burst towards the harmonious finish.
Slightly more expensive, the 2018 Chablis is similarly hued and reveals a pretty bouquet of mint-laced apple and citrus fruits as well as a touch of chalky minerality, oyster shell and charcoal, medium-bodied richness, nicely integrated acidity, and a clean finish.
