The Michel family has been cultivating their passion for tradition and the Chablis terroir since 1850. In the mid-20th century, the family stopped making wine in wooden barrels in favor of stainless steel tanks to create clean, pure, and precise Chablis without adding woody flavors that could mask the Chablis flavor and minerality. Through this philosophy, combined with limited yields inspired by organic wine-growing techniques, the domaine has developed a worldwide reputation for fine wine. A firmly-rooted sense of excellence is passed down from generation to generation. Louis Michel & Fils has always been a family business and is managed today by Guillaume Gicqueau-Michel.  

The highly acclaimed Grand Cru vineyard of Vaudésir has several types of soil. Louis Michel’s parcel is located in the mid-valley area. A whitish and chalky limestone clay is predominant in its steepest part, while the west side has browner clay soils. Wines made from the vines that grow here are tight, with saline notes and a wonderful creamy mouthfeel. This Grand Cru has the distinction of being drinkable and generous, even in its youth, yet will age extremely well. Vaudésir is a favorite climat of serious Chablis connoisseurs. 

This is made from very old vineyards planted in 1950, 1960 & 1970. The terroir contains a strong presence of clay, fairly deep soils that are heavy in places. North-west exposure, that provides cool temperatures and sunlight in the evening. Fairly steep slopes.

The 2019 Chablis Grand Cru Vaudésir wafts from the glass with aromas of green apple, crisp apricot, mandarin, fresh pastry and iodine. Full-bodied, satiny and layered, it's textural and enveloping, with a concentrated core of fruit and a long, perfumed finish. This has turned out brilliantly. Drink Date: 2023-2045.

A lean and steely white, with moderate apple and earth flavors and touches of herbs and graphite for grace notes. Puts on some weight midpalate, before converging on the stony finish. Drink now through 2026. 130 cases imported
