2018 Domaine Michel Niellon Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Champsgains"

SKU #1551343 94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark The Niellon holdings of Champgains sit in the middle of Chassagne and occupy 0.44ha on a gentle slope. If you like subtle struck match aromas, this will be your kind of wine, as it is mine. Pithy and stony, with racy minerality, grapefruit and citrus peel flavours, fine oak integration and just a drizzle of acacia honey. Classy winemaking from Michel Coutou. (TA) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark The alluring aromas of peach, lemon and toasty, baking spices mesh beautifully in this vibrant white. It's harmonious, making you want to enjoy it now, yet this should develop nicely too. Has fine length and a mouthwatering finish. (BS) Inner quote mark (4/2021)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Niellon's 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Champs Gain is showing very well indeed, soaring from the glass with aromas of Anjou pear, toasted hazelnuts and citrus oil. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied layered and incisive, with racy acids, excellent depth at the core and a long, precise finish. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2021)

90 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A more floral-inflected and slightly cooler nose is complemented by notes of citrus, green apple and a whiff of spice. Like the Maltroie, the medium weight flavors are not especially dense though they also offer an attractive texture along with just a bit more volume on the focused, sneaky long and lemon rind-tinged finish. Inner quote mark (6/2020)

K&L Notes

93 points Jasper Morris for Inside Burgundy: "Another pale colour but a little bit more evident energy on the nose. Racy, lime infused style, altogether tighter on the palate and less immediate flesh but good backbone and finish. This will need an extra year or two compared to Chenevottes or Maltroie." (10/2019)
