    Chablis Grand Cru Clos 2016, Louis Michel

    100 % Chardonnay fra den bedste Grand Cru i Chablis. Clos-marken har en stejl, sydøstlig eksponering og det helt rette mix af kalk og ler. Vinene fra le Clos har større intensitet og gemmepotentiale end de andre Grand Cru'er i Chablis. Gæret naturlig og lagret på ståltank i minimum 18 måneder inden flaskning.

    Meget intens aroma af citrus, hvid peber og en kompleks og pakket mineralitet. Koncentreret fersken/citrus i smagen, hvor mineraliteten går igen. Ekstrem lang eftersmag.

    Bør gemmes minimum 10-15 år fra høståret. Drikkes den tidligere bør den dekanteres til en bredbundet karaffel og ilte 2-8 timer.

    94 p. Decanter (årgang 2016)

    The Clos is excellent this year, opening in the glass with aromas of confit citrus, Meyer lemon, wet stones and a smoky framing of light reduction. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, concentrated and powerful - the most powerful of Michel’s grand cru bottlings - with intense, chalky minerality, superb depth, tensile acids and a long, vibrant finish.

    94 p. Wine Advocate (årgang 2016)

    Aromas of lemon oil, mandarin, honeycomb, iodine and leesy reduction introduce the 2016 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos, a full-bodied, multidimensional wine with excellent energy, concentration and chewy extract. It's the deepest and most reserved of all the wines in the cellar, and it will demand a few years of bottle age. - William Kelley

    91-93 p. Vinous (årgang 2016)

    Healthy pale-medium yellow. Musky lime zest, hazelnut and minerals on the nose, with a suggestion of riper fruits. The most complex of these 2016s in the mouth, displaying lovely breadth, refinement and inner-mouth energy to its rich yellow fruit and mineral flavors. A crushed stone quality gives firmness and cut to the wine's long finish. Really spreads out and vibrates on the lively back end. Nicely done. - Stephen Tanzer

    93 p. Vinous

    Light-medium yellow. Pure, inviting aromas of white peach, apple, lime zest, white flowers and white pepper. Juicy but reticent in the mouth, with its concentrated white peach, citrus and floral flavors accented by mint and salty minerality. Finishes pure and long, with a captivating light touch. According to Guillaume Gicqueau-Michel, there was no hail damage here as the estate's vines are situated in the western half of Les Clos, which was mostly unaffected. This fruit was picked on September 6, which had been the forecasted harvest date even before the big storm hit. - Stephen Tanzer
