Michel Niellon Chassagne Montrachet Champ Gains 2010

Michel Niellon Chassagne Montrachet Champ Gains 2010

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.

Tasting Notes
"Tasted blind at Farr Vintners Kumeu/White Burgundy tasting. The 2010 Chassagne Montrachet Champ Gain from Michel Niellon has a lucid silver/straw color. The bouquet is well balanced and quite complex with a light hazelnut and smoke scent developing in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp, quite angular tannin. This is an edgy, almost Muscadet-like Chassagne with a strong marine/saline element dominating the finish. Still youthful, it will need another 2-3 years in bottle." - Neal Martin
