Description

Details of wine

Louis Michel & Fils is a historic brand of the Chablis terroir, an excellence rooted in the ground that has handed down the history of this area from generation to generation.

Climate and terroir give life to a unique combination, the vines of over 40 years of age give unique characteristics to Chardonnay which is the undisputed prince here.
The vineyards of the Domaine cover all four denominations: Chablis Grand Cru, Premier Cru, Chablis and Petit Chablis, offering the entire range of aromas that this unique wine can produce.

Louis Michel & Fils was the forerunner of the vinification carried out exclusively in steel, convinced that the passage in wood did not transmit any quality to the wine.

Among its splendid wines we find this Chablis 1er Cru Butteaux 2016, born from the vineyards furthest from the cellar on the slopes of the Butteaux.
The processing of these grapes takes place when they have reached perfect ripeness, after being harvested by hand.
During vinification and maturation, the search for absolute discretion continues: fermentations occur only using natural yeast.

A complex and vibrant Chablis.

The Michel family have been cultivating their passion for tradition and the Chablis terroir since 1850. The winery is situated right in the heart of the village, with the 25-hectare vineyard spread over the very first slopes that were discovered by Cistercian monks in the 11th century. 40 years ago, the family decided to stop making the wine in wooden barrels, preferring to create clean, pure and precise Chablis without adding artificial woody tastes. Through this philosophy, combined with the limited yields inspired by organic wine-growing techniques, the Domaine has developed a worldwide reputation for fine wine-making in stainless steel tanks. Today, the Domaine is managed by Jean-Loup Michel and his nephew, Guillaume Gicqueau-Michel, who is continuing the family tradition.
