Chablis is the motherland of crisp, unoaked and mineral-driven Chard. It's where it was invented. Chablis' chalky soils and cool climate make perfectly crisp, racy, white wine that tastes a little different than Chardonnay from anywhere else in the world, even the rest of Burgundy.


One of the long standing "classic" producers of Chablis is the Domaine Louis-Michel. This family owned and operated estate has been producing Chablis for almost 200 years. The Domaine was the first in Chablis to make 100% stainless steel, oak-free wine (they thought it showed the grape and terroir flavors better).

Today it is Guillaume Michel who is at the helm, and he farms and makes the wine in much the same way that it was done by his ancestors. Yes, some innovations have taken hold, but in the end the focus of the domaine is on pure, terroir driven wines.

Professional Reviews

Burghound

BH 93
"There is a background touch of the exotic suffusing the ripe yet cool and pure white and yellow orchard fruit aromas that are laced with notes of various citrus elements and mineral reduction. The palate impression of energetic and almost delicate flavors is rich but wonderfully refined, all wrapped in delicious and impressively long finish where a hint of bitter lemon appears. This isn't especially dense but it appears to have the necessary stuff to reward a decade of cellaring."

Antonio Galloni

AG 95
"The 2018 Chablis Vaudésir Grand Cru is a powerful, dense wine imbued with deep earthy and soil-inflected notes that confer a sense of gravitas. That perception is amplified on the palate, where the wine is deep and muscular in feel. Readers should expect an introverted, brooding Chablis built on power. There is so much sheer concentration and richness here, but this wine needs time." -Vinous

Robert Parker

RP 93
"Exhibiting aromas of fresh peach, Asian pears, apple blossom and orange oil, the 2018 Chablis Grand Cru Vaudésir is medium to full-bodied, satiny and charming, with an ample core of lively, perfumed fruit, succulent acids and a beautifully defined finish. This is an immensely expressive, giving Vaudésir." -William Kelley

Decanter

D 94
"The domaine has two parcels of Vaudésir, both of which face north and are correspondingly cool. Picked late for a top 2018 because of its terroir, this is an elegant, focused white that's unadorned by oak, showing stony, citrus-fresh, chalky flavours and a classic mineral tang. An unusual expression of the Grand Cru." -Tim Atkin
