Guillaume Michel

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

Our goal is to produce authentic Chablis that respect the environment and are the best expression of the terroir. We let the wine make itself, as far as possible.

About Louis Michel

The Domaine Louis Michel winery is situated right in the heart of the village of Chablis, with its 25-hectares of vineyards spread over the very first slopes that were cultivated by Cistercian monks in the 11th century. The Michel family has been cultivating the Chablis terroir for 6 generations, since 1850. More than 40 years ago, the family was one of the first to stop making wine in wooden barrels, preferring to create clean, pure and precise Chablis, respecting the typicity of each terroir, without any woody tastes.

Through this philosophy, combined with the limited yields inspired by organic wine-growing techniques, Domaine Louis Michel has developed a worldwide reputation for fine wine-making in stainless steel tanks. Today, the Domaine is managed by Jean-Loup and his nephew, Guillaume Michel.

The winery produces a range of village, Premier Cru and Grand Cru wines from throughout the appellation, and its wines are regarded as among the best values in all of white Burgundy.
