2013 Domaine Michel Niellon Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Clos de la Maltroie"

SKU #1302051 92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark *Outstanding* An expressive and slightly smoky nose offers up cool notes of citrus zest, white flower, pear and apple scents. There is a lovely sense of verve to the racy and strikingly intense middle weight flavors that possess good dry extract and excellent finishing delineation on the more complex and persistent finish. This built-to-age effort delivers fine quality and is well worth considering. Inner quote mark (6/2015)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Feels a little closed, as if some air will benefit the seashore, stone, butterscotch, apple and lemon flavors. This is well-structured, with a brisk, cleansing finish. Best from 2017 through 2024. (BS) Inner quote mark (2/2016)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Aromas of wet stone and menthol smell serious, even austere. Then very dry and backward in the mouth, with a hint of pineapple currently overshadowed by crushed rock and minerals. This wine was bottled in November of 2014 after finishing its malo in July. Inner quote mark (9/2015)

89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru la Maltroie, racked a month ago and taken from tank, has a delightful, lime-scented nose with stony scents developing just behind. The palate is well balanced with good weight in the mouth, crisp acidity although I found just a slight abruptness on the finish that will hopefully be remedied by the time of bottling. This is a commendable premier cru, though this domaine made better premier crus in 2013. (NM) Inner quote mark (12/2014)
