2018 Domaine Michel Niellon Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Les Chaumées - Clos de la Truffière"

SKU #1551342 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark One wine that's indubitably built for the cellar is Niellon's emblematic 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Chaumées Clos de la Truffière. Opening in the glass with scents of crisp orchard fruit, Meyer lemon, wheat toast and a subtle touch of reduction, it's medium to full-bodied, textural and incisive, with fine depth at the core, lively acids, and a long, precise finish. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark An opulent style, this white boasts lush flavors of peach, apricot, butter and toasty, spicy elements. It's beautifully balanced, the richness offset by tangy, lime-tinged acidity, with terrific length on the finish. Drink now through 2025. Inner quote mark (4/2021)

91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Smoky aromas of the essence of white peach are given added breadth with hints of citrus peel and passion fruit. There is fine richness to the beautifully textured medium-bodied flavors that are at once suave and succulent while offering very good length on the lemon rind-tinged finish. This too should be approachable young thanks to the abundant level of dry extract. *Burghound Outstanding!* Inner quote mark (6/2020)

K&L Notes

93pts Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "This is the Niellon’s oldest plot, hard to work as the vines grow almost straight on the rock. There is also a hydric stress risk here. Clear pale colour, the nose is a little blocked today. White fruit, excellent texture, just the right acidity, savoury saline notes but sheer class too. Lovely. Tasted: October 2019."
