M. Niellon Chassagne Montrachet Les Champs Gain 1er Cru 2018

M. Niellon Chassagne Montrachet Les Champs Gain 1er Cru 2018

100% Chardonnay. Michel Niellon, who began working with his father Marcel in the 1950s, has crafted more than fifty vintages of extraordinary wines. The father-son team began domaine-bottling in the 1960s 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. This Champs Gain is the perfect example of that. One of the best vineyards in Chassagne Montrachet, the grapes are hand-harvested and fermented in steel tanks before they age in French oak barriques (20-30% new) for 9 months. It is a ripe, juicy wine that is intertwined with superb minerality. 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.

Tasting Notes
"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." - William Kelley
