Critical Acclaim

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Readers will find an open, seductive and totally beautiful wine in the 2010 Chablis Vaudesir. An endless array of aromas and flavors emerges from the glass as this gorgeous wine shows off its immense pedigree and class. Nothing in particular stands out; instead it is the wine's sheer pleasure that is most captivating. In 2010, the Vaudesir is pure sensuality. Already alluring today, it also has enough depth to drink well for a number of years.
BH 94
Burghound.com
A notably ripe and even mildly exotic nose features notes of white peach, wet stone, pear and hints of apricot and tangerine that introduce rich, powerful and solidly well-concentrated flavors that possess a real sense of volume on the intense, vibrant and explosively long finish that really coats the palate with dry extract. This terrific effort should offer 6 to 10 years of upside development potential.

Domaine Louis Michel et Fils
Chablis was made famous by the merchants of Beaune. In the early eighteenth century, Beaune meant red burgundy; Chablis meant white. This caught on and around the world. Chablis became a synonym for dry white wine.

Today, 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 Michel philosophy is "Let the wine make itself, as far as possible". In sticking to this philosophy Jean-Loup Michel uses no barrels.

"Louis Michel has long been the reference point for tank fermented Chablis. I have been a huge admirer of his wines for years. Why? They are perhaps the purest expressions of the stony Chardonnay fruit grown on the limestone slopes of this northern Burgundy appellation." Robert M. Parker, Jr. The Wine Advocate

Syrah/Shiraz

View all wine

Marked by unmistakable aromatics, a savory palate, and an elegant texture, Syrah is capable of producing fascinatingly complex and long-lived wines with a stunning purple hue. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah’s best examples are found in Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie. It is also an important component of the GSM blends of the Southern Rhône and beyond, alongside Grenache and Mourvèdre. Both varietal Syrah and GSM blends are common in Australia and California and are gaining popularity in Washington State. In Australia, Syrah is known by the synonym Shiraz, which tends to indicate a bolder, fruit-driven style of wine, and is occasionally blended with Cabernet Sauvignon for added depth and structure.

In the Glass

At its best, Syrah shows aromas and flavors of purple fruits, fragrant violets, baking spice, white pepper, smoke, and even bacon fat. Many examples from California aim to recreate this savory style, while others focus more on concentrated fruit flavors. In Australia, under the name Shiraz, it shines as that country’s unofficial signature red grape, producing deep, dark, intense, and often jammy reds.

Perfect Pairings

Cool-climate Syrah, with its peppery spices, is a natural match with flavorful Moroccan-spiced lamb dishes, where the spice is more about flavor than heat. With Australian Shiraz, grown in warmer regions, heavy meat dishes with abundant protein and fat are a necessity to match the intensity of the wine.

Sommelier Secret

Due to the success of Australian “Shiraz,” this synonym for Syrah has been adopted by winemakers throughout the world. If the label says “Shiraz,” you can typically expect a plush, fruity, and potent wine made in the Australian style. New World "Syrah" will generally more closely resemble the French style.
