« A heady melange of white flowers, stone fruits and spices bursts from the 2011 Chablis Sechets. Floral and spice elements are quite pronounced, but it is the wine’s exuberance and expressiveness that stand out most. » (Wine Advocate 2014 - Robert Parker)

Guide Bettane & Desseauve des Vins de France

Wine rated (guide 2014) : 16/20 (Très bon vin)
Vineyard rated (guide 2019) : 3***Stars (A production of high-quality, that could be used as a reference in its area)

About this wine : Des parfums plus précis et plus élégants que le Vaillons, toucher délicat, texture finement serrée.

About the vineyard : Guillaume Michel tente de faire mieux connaître ce domaine en France, même si l'essentiel de la production part toujours à l'export. Le patrimoine de terroirs est remarquable, avec notamment les trois expressions du premier cru Montmains (Montmains, Forêt, Butteaux), une première à Chablis. Des vinifications en cuve inox (depuis 1969), en levures indigènes depuis 2008, des élevages longs et le moins interventionnistes possibles, ces vins de temps démarrent souvent discrètement en bouteille mais expriment avec les années leur magnifique pureté cristalline dans le verre. Tous les parcellaires ont été produits en 2016, notamment les différentes déclinaisons de Montmains et de Vaillons.

Wine Advocate - Robert Parker

Wine Advocate - Robert Parker

Wine rated (guide 2012) : 91-93/100 (Vin Formidable)
Vineyard rated (guide 2018) : Recommended (Winery recommended by the Wine Advocate - Robert Parker)

About this wine : Un mélange harmonieux de fleurs blanches, de fruits à noyau et d'épices explose au nez de ce Chablis Séchets 2011. Les notes florales et épicées sont prononcées mais c'est l'exubérance et l'expression de ce vin qui ressortent le plus. Un part de la complixité de ce vin s'estompe en fin de bouche. Il sera intéressant de voir comme le Séchets évolue dans les années à venir.

Guide des Meilleurs Vins de France - RVF

Vineyard rated (guide 2019) : Sélectionné (Nous rappelons que ce guide est un palmarès et qu'à ce titre, tous les domaines qui y figurent, même sans étoile, représentent, à nos yeux, l'excellence de la production française.)

About the vineyard : Géré par Jean-Loup et Guillaume Michel, ce domaine fondé en 1850 s’est toujours fait le chantre des chablis premiers crus très purs et très nets, sans utilisation du bois. Discrets dans leur jeunesse, ces chardonnays sont bâtis pour évoluer de dix à vingt ans en bouteille. Le domaine développe un style de chardonnay de prime abord assez direct dans l’expression du fruit, mais avec des finales en retenue, voir très jugulées.
