Premier Cru White Burgundy - Chardonnay. A vineyard with close proximity to Montrachet, that certainly reflects some of the power and brooding nature of said vineyard. Niellon’s parcel is painfully small at 0.18 hectares. Showing less reduction than some of the other wines, but with more weight. A very brooding nose. The palate weight reflects the nose but has more defined fruit and incredible phenolic structure. | “Fresh and pale, the nose has laid back white fruit. Starts slowly on the palate but there is a good build up to the back, entirely white fruit, a little acidity.” 91 Points, Jasper Morris: Inside Burgundy | “The 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Chenevottes opens in the glass with scents of citrus oil, white flowers, fresh nutmeg and green apple, framed by a touch of light reduction that dissipates with aeration. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, satiny but precise, with lively acids and a long, mineral finish. I suspect it will become more honeyed and exotic as it ages.” 92 Points, William Kelley: The Wine Advocate
