Chablis Grand Cru `Les Clos`, Louis Michel

Domaine Louis Michel et Fils
Product Code: LM1921WC

Tasting Notes

Mineral undertones, preceded by a citric freshness. Purity of fruit, fresh, balanced and hugely appealing. Perfect for summer drinking. "Grand Cru Les Clos may seem austere and virile at first. But it is actually very expressive on the palate, with dominant mineral aromas, complemented by white pepper and nutmeg notes."

sustainable in the vineyards with the highest level of HVE certification. 
Biodiversity is vital to their work with hedgerow populations of insects and a population of bees humming through the vineyards. In the winery, the wines are vinified only in stainless steel, using natural yeasts to preserve the 
expression of terroir in its purest form. Without the presence of oxygen in the early stages of their development these wines take longer to express themselves in bottle, but richly reward those who wait.

About this product +

Producer >

A family of winemakers since the 19th century the Michel family vineyards are planted on the first slopes to be farmed by Cistercian monks during the 11th century. The 25 hectares encapsulate 3 Grand Crus and 7 Premier Crus as well as Chablis and Petit Chablis terroir. Guillaume Michel runs the domaine now, 80% of the vines are farmed organically, he is strictly sustainable in the vineyards with the highest level of HVE certification.  Biodiversity is vital to their work with hedgerow populations of insects and a population of bees humming through the vineyards. In the winery, the wines are vinified only in stainless steel, using natural yeasts to preserve the expression of terroir in its purest form. Without the presence of oxygen in the early stages of their development these wines take longer to express themselves in bottle, but richly reward those who wait. 

Winemaking >

"No added yeast, long fermentation using indigenous yeasts, in temperature-controlled vats. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation. Matured for at least 18 months. In stainless steel tanks, with the least possible handling. Long moderately cold stabilisation. Fining using bentonite if necessary. The wine is gently filtered once before bottling."
