Michel Niellon, Chassagne-Montrachet, Clos Saint Jean 2016

Shipping calculated at checkout.
By C4

Michel Niellon operates out of two absurdly small cellars in Chassagne, producing quite simply sublime wines. He has only 6 hectares of vines, which include small holdings in Chevalier and Bâtard-Montrachet. Old vines and low yields give these wines their intensity, along with Niellon`s supreme winemaking skills.

Supply is severely rationed due to the small size of the domaine and Niellon`s huge following in the United States. But, for those lucky enough to secure some bottles, the rewards are immense.

93 points Decanter

A reserved nose of lemon and lime zest, crème pâtissière, toasted nuts and toasted wheat introduce an intense, concentrated and full-bodied wine. It's ampler than the Clos de la Maltroie, with a glossily textural attack, pure and deep at the core. Drinking Window 2020 - 2030. (WK) (10/2017)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2016 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jean offers up a reserved nose of lemon and lime zest, pastry cream, toasted nuts and bread. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied intense and concentrated, with a glossy attack, broader shoulders than the Clos de la Maltroie and excellent depth and purity. It should develop positively with bottle age over the coming decade. (WK) (1/2019)
