Today, Guillaume Michel presides over this important 22-hectare estate, which as 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 by style and consistently high in quality. Indeed, I sometimes think that Louis Michel is the most underrated of Chablis’s great domaines. Certainly, prices remain very reasonable. As usual, certain cuvees stand out-at the premier cru level, the old vine Butteaux, the Fourchaume (from Vaulorent) and the Sechet, Montee de Tonnerre having taken a beating in recent vintages-but the overall standard, even for the lower appellations, is regular and high. They come warmly recommended. - William Kelley, 31st Aug 2018, 238, The Wine Advocate
