Description

94   Jasper Morris
“Pale lemon in colour. A beautiful and balanced bouquet, ripe fruit, stylish, completely balanced. A little touch of liquorice, but this is a fine, concentrated and nuanced wine. Like the Montée de Tonnerre, it continues to give long after the glass is empty.” (6/2022)

94   William Kelley for Wine Advocate
“The 2020 Chablis Grand Cru Vaudésir is another success, bursting with sweet aromas of vine blossom, citrus fruits, wet stones and white flowers. Full-bodied, ample and seamless, it’s bright and satiny, with a racy spine of acidity and a long, precise finish. Guillaume Michel presides over this important 22-hectare estate, which has long been the reference for tank-fermented and matured Chablis, a style that the Michel family did much to popularize in the 1980s. Intense and tensile wines are the calling card here, pure and unadorned in style and consistently high in quality. Indeed, I sometimes think that Louis Michel is the most underrated of Chablis’s larger domaines. The 2020 vintage is a real success here and likely the domaine’s best since 2017. Some cuvées will see a slightly longer than usual élevage due to glass shortages, but I suspect that will only enhance their quality.” (7/2021)

93   Allen Meadows for Burghound
“As was the case when I first reviewed this wine, reduction still dominates the nose at present. On the palate the lacy middleweight flavors possess a gorgeous texture while delivering excellent delineation and persistence on the balanced finale. This elegant and highly refined effort dances across the palate and it too is really quite promising yet because of it’s almost delicate mouthfeel, it could be enjoyed young if that’s your preference. Note that my rating offers the benefit of the doubt that will age the reduction will gradually lift.” (10/2022)
