Domaine Louis Michel et Fils Chablis AC 2016
These vines are situated in the heart of the historic vineyard. The varying soil dates back to the Kimmeridgian period, with relatively deep clay loam, containing marl and oyster fossils. Quite rich in limestone. 100% Chardonnay with an average vine age of more than 35 years. The wines are vinified via a long fermentation using natural yeast, in temperature-regulated tanks, then undergo spontaneous malolactic fermentation. They are blended in tanks at the end of vinification before being left to mature on fine lees, only in stainless steel tanks, with as little manipulation as possible for at least six to eight months.
The wine should be aired or carafed before tasting. It will reveal notes of white fruit such as peach, with a mineral structure. In the mouth, a stony sensation complements this pure, rounded wine.

World Wine – Straight-forward and quite focused, the lively 2015 Louis Michel & Fils Chablis exemplifies what this beautiful Chardonnay region is all about—fresh fruit purity. This wine offer of tart apples and frisky minerality pair it well with clams in linguine.
