Michel Niellon, Chassagne Montrachet, Chaumees - Clos de la Truffiere 2005
removed from Original Carton
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.

Gold color: elegant nose of cardamom and tarragon, also a sweeter spice,? cinnamon; full bodied, flavors of peach/pear match the nose in intensity; very balanced, long finish, nice acidity to prep for the next taste of food. Good alone but really sings with food. An elegant burg!! (9/2017)
