2018 Domaine Louis Michel et Fils 'Les Clos Grand Cru' Chablis
Winemaker Notes: 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.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2018 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos has turned out nicely, unfurling in the glass with aromas of ripe citrus fruits, confit lemons, pear and orange blossom. It is full-bodied, elegantly muscular and textural, with fine depth at the core, ripe but succulent acids and a long, penetrating finish. This is the broadest-shouldered, most powerful wine in the Louis Michel portfolio."
Burghound - "There are plenty of classic Chablis elements adding breadth to the mineral reduction, cool white-fleshed fruit, iodine and citrus-suffused aromas. As is usually the case with textbook examples of Les Clos, there is fine size, weight and volume to the powerful and tension-filled flavors that deliver very fine depth and length on the detailed well-balanced finale. This very well-made effort should amply reward 10+ years of cellaring. Range: 91-93"
