Domaine Louis Michel et Fils Chablis Butteaux 1er Cru Vieilles Vignes 2019

Domaine Louis Michel et Fils Chablis Butteaux 1er Cru Vieilles Vignes 2019

The 2019 Chablis 1er Cru Butteaux Vieilles Vignes is excellent, mingling aromas of pear, citrus oil and warm bread with hints of iodine. Bottled later than the younger-vine cuvée of Butteaux, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, with racy acids and chalky grip. As I've written before, 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. As the reviews reflect, the 2019s have turned out nicely, with a touch more flesh and fruit than usual but retaining good freshness. - 93pts, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
