Som datter af Jean-Claude Courtault er Stéphanie Courtault – i dag Michelet – vokset op med Chablis på allernærmeste hold. I 2008 fik hun og ægtemanden Vincent Michelet selv adgang til et par marker og begyndte derfra at lave en smule Chablis og Petit Chablis i eget navn side om side med forældrenes domaine.

Det var dengang. I dag står Stéphanie og Vincent i spidsen for begge domainer, og Michelet-brandet spænder i dag over hele spektret af vine fra Petit Chablis til Chablis Grand Cru fordelt over 5 kommuner. I 2017 erhvervede de sig endvidere en lille Pinot Noir-parcel i Côte de Grisey øst for Chablis og laver derfra verdens sådan ca. nordligste Bourgogne Rouge.

Vinmarkerne er spredt over 7 forskellige sogne i Chablis-området, hvor størstedelen ligger i Lignorelles og Beines. Deres marker er i Mligny, Chablis, Fye, Villy og Epineuil. Deres ældste parceller blev tilplantet for omkring 60 år siden.

Sagt om Stephanie et Vincent Michelet

"Here is a producer to keep your eye on. I tasted the wines of Domaine Jean-Claude Courtault in Chablis, but met with winemaker Stéphanie Michelet at a subsequent tasting in London. There are two labels from a single winery. Domaine Jean-Claude Courtault is Stéphanie's Loire-born father and the original domaine set up in the 1980s. Together with her husband Vincent, they worked in Alsace, but then returned to Chablis where they established Domaine Stéphanie & Vincent Michelet in 2007. Why the two labels? They wanted to divide their 27-hectare of vines into two styles, with the fruitier style from parcels around Lignerolles on clayey soils and early-ripening fruit, and the more mineral-driven wines on limestone soils and labelled under Stephanie and Vincent Michelet. Everything here is picked by machine, the fruit pressed as soon as it is harvested, the must worked gently with no pumps and using gravity to fill the tanks, except for during racking. There is very little wood contact apart from the Chablis under Stephanie and Vincent Michelet due to a small plot of older vines, everything else in stainless steel. The Beauroy also sees a little ageing in used demi-muids, but less than 10% of the final blend, whereas the Mont de Milieu is aged only in 22-hectoliter stainless steel with 10-12 months on the lees." - Neil Martin i Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, August 2016.

"Jean-Claude Courtault is now in retirement, and his daughter and her husband have now consolidated his 12-hectare domaine and their own Domaine Stéphanie & Vincent Michelet under the Courtault Michelet label. As readers may remember, their holdings are focused around Vignorelles, where clay-rich soils tend to produce a more textural, structured style of Chablis. Vinified in tank, these are serious, impressively age-worthy offerings despite their predominantly modest appellations, and they merit readers' consideration. - William Kelley"
