2017 Domaine Michel Niellon Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "La Maltroie"

SKU #1460449 94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Plush, evoking butterscotch, vanilla, clove and nutmeg top notes wrapped around a core of peach and apple flavors. Firms up on the finish, but a year or two in bottle should help this find equilibrium. A smoky mineral element adds depth. Best from 2021 through 2027. (BS) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

89-91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright light yellow. Expressive nose combines pear, honey, menthol and flowers. Ripe, fine-grained and nicely concentrated, showing more gras than the Chaumées "Clos de la Truffière" but also healthy acidity and floral lift. A bit aggressive on the back end but not spiky, finishing with very good length. (ST) Inner quote mark (9/2018)

Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark This is aromatically similar to the Chassagne villages but with more evident citrus influence. The delicious and vibrant medium weight flavors possess a caressing mouth feel while exhibiting so much salinity that the mildly warm finish is borderline salty! Note that this is sufficiently forward that it could be enjoyed on the younger side. Inner quote mark (6/2019)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Smoky, matchstick aromas on the nose, lovely honeysuckle notes on the palate and crisp, precise acidity. Dry, fibrous palate with a long, bitter-lemon note to finish. Bold and cannily oaked, with the smoke and spice complementing the ripe fruit. 17/20 points. (RH) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

K&L Notes

91 points Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Pale lemon colour, no nose at all, a certain chiselled steeliness, white fruit, more weight of fruit through the middle, and a respectable finish. The length is there. How much personality? Tasted: October 2018."
