Winemaker Notes

It will reveal notes of spring meadow flowers, white fruit and kiwi. The absence of an artificial woody taste ensures that there is perfect harmony between the aromatic complexity and the minerality of the terroir.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2011 Chablis Grenouilles boasts gorgeous depth and sheer power. This is a decidedly big, fleshy wine laced with dried pears, flowers, honey, licorice and spices. There is a verticality to the Grenouilles that is highly appealing. Layers of fruit continue to build to the creamy, resonant finish. My sense is that the Grenouilles will drink well relatively early.
Range: 91-94

This is ripe yet very fresh with notes of iodine, ocean breeze, mineral reduction and dried yellow orchard fruit. Somewhat surprisingly, this is both bigger and richer than the Vaudésir but with first class vibrancy, all wrapped in a saline-infused, explosive and distinctly cool finish. In sum, this is really lovely because despite the size and weight, the balance is impeccable.
Rang: 92-94

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."

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.
