Premier Cru White Burgundy - Chardonnay. Positioned on the mid-slope in the centre of the village, on soils of clay and fragmented rocks. Niellon has a 0.44 hectare portion. Beautifully lifted with classy reduction, the most floral of the wines. The palate is complete with woven phenolics. Very long. | "Another pale colour but a little bit more evident energy on the nose. Racy, lime infused style, altogether tighter on the palate and less immediate flesh but good backbone and finish. This will need an extra year or two compared to Chenevottes or Maltroie.” 93 Points, Jasper Morris: Inside Burgundy | "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." 93 Points, William Kelley: The Wine Advocate
