Michel Niellon Chassagne Montrachet Clos Maltroie 1er Cru 2016

Michel Niellon Chassagne Montrachet Clos Maltroie 1er Cru 2016

100% Chardonnay. Michel Niellon, who began working with his father Marcel in the 1950's, has crafted more than fifty vintages of extraordinary wines. The father-son team began domaine-bottling in the 1960’s and soon after, their four hectare estate was considered one of the very best in the village. Since 1991, Michel has shared vineyard and winemaking duties with his son-in-law, Michel Coutoux. In fact, Michel Coutoux is routinely producing wines of impressively consistent quality and style. As such, this is a domaine in fine form today, and wine lovers who have fallen out of touch with the wines are advised to reacquaint themselves with this excellent producer. Clos de la Maltroie is a textbook example of a Chassagne white with abundant fruit and overall balance.

Tasting Notes
"The 2016 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Maltroie is a pretty, charming wine that displays attractive aromas of white flowers, hazelnut cream, green pear and a touch of wheat toast. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, juicy and vibrant, with a glossy attack and a bright, delicate profile." - William Kelley
