Domaine Louis Michel et Fils Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos 2011
Located halfway up the hillside, in the heart of the vineyard, Louis Michel's 1.2-acre parcel is split into two: one half was planted in 1967 and the other half was replanted in 2000. Kimmeridgian soil of limestone pebbles encased in a clay texture, marl with oyster fossils. Relatively deep soil with plenty of limestone on a very steep slope. Vines with an average age of 40 years.

Allen Meadows – A fresh, cool and highly reserved nose offers up notes of white flowers, citrus elements, pear, green apple and a plethora of Chablis character. The mouth feel of the substantially-scaled flavours is really quite fine with lovely delineation and verve adding to that impression, all wrapped in an intensely mineral-driven finish that is clean, dry, balanced and notably complex. This classically styled beauty should amply reward up to a decade of cellaring.
