    This bottle has it all for under $30: great producer, premier cru quality, fantastic vintage! The truth is in the wine itself, with great depth of fruit flavors like Granny Smith apples and Meyer lemons, and white floral notes. It is brimming with minerality and has a rich and precise phenolic texture. The fruit is given a huge lift by the signature acidity of the vintage.

    It doesn't get much better than this. If ever there was a Chablis destined to be consumed with oysters, it is this wine. Gorgeous aromas of seashells, stone fruit and citrus cascade to a palate brimming with energy. Flint notes as well as racy minerality burst over the palate on this bright and zippy Chablis. Louis Michel eschews the use of oak on his Chablis and opts for the fruit source and terroir to shine through. With the great vintage of 2014, this is an absolute stunner.

    "Montmains" from Louis Michel has power and grace of true Chablis. Pure, rich in texture, aromatic, very mineral, brisk and clean; absolutely unadulterated by oak influence ( 100% stainless steel) . This is the textbook Chablis from one of the best white Burgundy vintages which is almost gone from the market. Definitely essential wine for everybody who loves Burgundy.

    As the 2014 white Burgundy vintage disappears from the market, you have to ask yourself, "did I buy enough". My own answer is certainly not. The extremely clean, almost peachy Chardonnay aromatics of this great 2014 bely the strong minerality underneath and behind this wine. This wine is great drinking now with all manner of shellfish, especially the noble Dungeness Crab, but will also develop beautifully over the next ten years.
    Drink from 2017 to 2027
