Domaine Louis Michel & Fils
The Michel family has been making wines in the heart of Chablis since the 19th century. A firmly rooted sense of excellence is passed down generation to generation. Louis Michel & Fils has always been a family business, and is managed today by Guillaume Michel who takes great pride in perpetuating the Domaine’s ethos.
AN EXCEPTIONAL VINEYARD
The family vineyard whose vines are 45 years old on average, is located in the heart of the original Chablis terroir, on the most prestigious parcels within a 2-kilometre radius from the winery. The Domaine’s vineyards cover all 4 classifications: Chablis Grand Cru, Premier Cru, Chablis and Petit Chablis, offering the whole range of aromas that this unique wine can produce.
The Domaine makes 3 prestigious Grand Crus – including the legendary Grenouilles – as well as 7 Premier Crus.
AN ALTERNATIVE APPROACH
As a pioneer and now a leader on the subject, Louis Michel & Fils made the bold decision to vinify its wines only in stainless steel tanks: this neutral material does not have any effect on the natural qualities of the chardonnay grapes. This approach is certainly apparent in the Louis Michel & Fils style: the Chablis wines exude finesse, purity and freshness.
The Domaine is truly the flag-bearer for wine that is fermented and matured without coming into contact with wood.
