Grand Cru Bottling from the Prized Kimmeridgian Slopes of Chablis and the 97-Point Vintage! The Historic Reference Point Estate Delivers the “Utterly Classic” Louis Michel Chablis Vaudesir (95De/94+JG)!

"Louis Michel has long been the reference point for tank fermented Chablis. I have been a huge admirer of his wines for years. Why? They are perhaps the purest expressions of the stony Chardonnay fruit grown on the limestone slopes of this northern Burgundy appellation.”  – Robert Parker

“You should buy the 2014s and secondly, I would suggest not only buying but buying aggressively.” - Allen Meadows, Burghound

The wine just arrived and we couldn’t wait to share it. The Louis Michel Chablis Vaudesir (95De/94+JG) is the epitome of pure, flinty chardonnay from the old vines of Chablis’ Grand Cru slopes. Critics and wine enthusiasts alike have long considered Louis Michel one of the great reference points of the prized region who consistently produces top quality unoaked and mineral-driven chardonnay, and in the 97-point white Burgundy vintage, the domaine has delivered an “utterly classic” expression for just $59.99.

Where else can you find Grand Cru of this quality under $60? I am not alone when I say that Chablis is one of the great white wine producing regions of the world! As a matter of fact, just about every wine critic, trade professional and connoisseur will gladly profess their love for the Chardonnay grape produced in these upper slopes of Burgundy. Why? Few wines can deliver the "goût de pierre à fusil" or flinty minerality that can only come from the limestone and fossilized oyster shells of the Kimmeridgian soils in this region. And more importantly, there is value to be found here; where else can you find a white that will age decades, consistently earn 90+ ratings, and deliver an exceptional Grand Cru expression under $60!

Special pricing is valid through March 21st.

All my best,
Andrew
