Domaine Louis-Michel & Fils


Attending Winemaker: Guillaume Gicqueau-Michel

The Louis-Michel domaine was founded in 1850 and is currently sixth-generation family owned. The winery is situated in the heart of Chablis, with the 25 hectare vineyard spread over the first wine-producing slopes, discovered by Cistercian monks in the 11th Century. A top winery in the appellation, the wines can age remarkably well. Vinification takes place at low temperature, and there is no batonnage. No oak has been used for the past forty years.
