2018 Domaine Michel Niellon Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Clos de la Maltroie"

SKU #1509404 92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Very well executed reduction and oak interplay with some flint and praline, hazelnut and peach, as well as lemon curd. The palate has a very vivid, punchy presence with grapefruit and juicy peach flavors holding bright into the long finish. Inner quote mark (12/2020)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark An elegant style, with aromas and flavors of lime blossom, apple and oak spice. There is less weight here, yet no less intensity. Fine, lingering finish. Inner quote mark (4/2021)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Aromas of fresh pear, toasted bread, peach and nutmeg introduce Niellon's 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Maltroie, a medium to full-bodied, elegantly satiny wine that's pure, precise and delicately chalky, with fine depth at the core and a nicely defined finish. As I wrote last year, Niellon's son-in-law, Michel Coutoux, is routinely producing wines of impressively consistent quality and style. Coutoux describes the 2018 vintage as 'another Burgundian classic,' much the same terms he applied to his excellent 2017s, and this is one address where 2017 and 2018 are more first cousins than distant relations. As readers may remember, house fingerprint here is distinctive, with a touch of toasty oak from Saint-Romain's Tonnellerie Gillet marking each cuvée and the wines dependably distinguishing themselves with lovely texture and concentration. This is a domaine in fine form today, and readers who have fallen out of touch with the wines are advised to reacquaint themselves with this excellent producer. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

K&L Notes

91 points Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Three ages of vine in white, and they have some pinot noir here too. The nose is a little bit neutral, but there is very good bone structure and quite some power at the back. Not slight by any means. This has Chassagne’s rectangular shape in contrast to the roundness of Meursault or a more linear Puligny. Tasted: October 2019."
