A true benchmark producer of world-class Chassagne Montrachet wines....!

Michel Niellon, who began working with his father Marcel in 1957, has crafted more than 50 vintages of extraordinary wines. From the original 4-hectare estate in Chassagne-Montrachet, Michel has built a notable reputation, creating rich, ripe premiers and grands crus white Burgundies as well as a small amount of excellent premier cru red.

Grapes fermented in stainless steel tanks and near the end of fermentation, the wine is transferred to small oak barrels to ferment dry and complete malolactic fermentation during barrel aging. Batônnage is used sparingly as the wines of Chassagne are already rich. All wines are aged eight to nine months in 20 –30 percent new oak.

On the nose this shows tropical fruit, pear, apples and a touch of matchstick, opening on the palate to a wine that is a bit riper than the Bourgogne, showing baked apple spice combined with bright citrus. Spectacular.

12.5% ABV
