Winemaker Notes

It has a complex nose, with caramelized baked apple aromas, toasted notes and sensations of wet stone and undergrowth. The palate is vibrant, with a mouthwatering finish.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JM 95
Jasper Morris
The lightest of green tints in with the pale yellow. The nose is not too rich and speaks of the limestone more than the sunshine. There is an intensity here over and above Forêts, the tension balancing the fruit content very nicely. Ripe long finish.
Barrel Sample: 92-95
BH 93
Burghound.com
This is aromatically similar to the Forêts but with the addition of plenty of mineral reduction character. There is even better power and volume to the highly energetic middle weight plus flavors that exhibit a taut muscularity on the complex, sleek and notably drier finale. Good potential here.
Barrel Sample: 90-93
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

More textural than the Fôrets, the 2020 Chablis 1er Cru Butteaux delivers notes of orange oil, fresh orchard fruit, clear honey and apple blossom, followed by a medium to full-bodied, fleshy and saline palate.

Domaine Louis Michel et Fils, France
Domaine Louis Michel et Fils Guillaume Gicqueau Winery Image

The Michel family has been cultivating their passion for tradition and the Chablis terroir since 1850. In the mid-20th century, the family stopped making wine in wooden barrels in favor of stainless steel tanks to create clean, pure, and precise Chablis without adding artificial woody flavors. Through this philosophy, combined with limited yields inspired by organic wine-growing techniques, the Domaine has developed a worldwide reputation for fine winemaking in stainless steel tanks. A firmly-rooted sense of excellence is passed down from generation to generation. Louis Michel & Fils has always been a family business and is managed today by Guillaume Gicqueau-Michel."

Chablis

Burgundy, France

The source of the most racy, light and tactile, yet uniquely complex Chardonnay, Chablis, while considered part of Burgundy, actually reaches far past the most northern stretch of the Côte d’Or proper. Its vineyards cover hillsides surrounding the small village of Chablis about 100 miles north of Dijon, making it actually closer to Champagne than to Burgundy. Champagne and Chablis have a unique soil type in common called Kimmeridgian, which isn’t found anywhere else in the world except southern England. A 180 million year-old geologic formation of decomposed clay and limestone, containing tiny fossilized oyster shells, spans from the Dorset village of Kimmeridge in southern England all the way down through Champagne, and to the soils of Chablis. This soil type produces wines full of structure, austerity, minerality, salinity and finesse.

Chablis Grands Crus vineyards are all located at ideal elevations and exposition on the acclaimed Kimmeridgian soil, an ancient clay-limestone soil that lends intensity and finesse to its wines. The vineyards outside of Grands Crus are Premiers Crus, and outlying from those is Petit Chablis. Chablis Grand Cru, as well as most Premier Cru Chablis, can age for many years.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
