Domaine Louis MichelWebsite : www.louismicheletfils.com
We are delighted to be UK agent for the benchmark Chablis wines from Louis Michel. The Michel family are purists. Around 40 years ago, they decided that none of their wines would see a trace of oak – deeming any modification to the raw terroirs of Chablis to be ‘artificial flavouring’. Initially reserved and restrained, the wines open to reveal much interest and complexity. The 25-hectare estate is currently managed by Jean-Loup Michel and his nephew, Guillaume – the fifth and sixth generations of the family to make wine in Chablis.
