Product Description

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.

The 2017 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos is the most reserved wine in the range, but its quality is already more than apparent. Unfurling in the glass with scents of citrus oil, green apple and iodine and framed by a deft touch of smoky reduction, it's full-bodied, deep and broad-shouldered, with immense concentration, a multidimensional but tight-knit core, racy underlying acids and a long, searingly mineral finish. This will demand some patience, but it will be worth it. 95+ Points Wine Advocate

This nails the sort of prowess and showy style that defines this cru. The nose is so glossy and ripe with peach and lemon brulée. Such fleshy texture on the palate with underlying minerality that holds the finish so long and deep. Superb balance, depth and concentration. Mouth-filling and very approachable. Such is the fleshy richness here. Drink or hold. 95+ Points Nick Stock
