Positioned at the top of the slope to the west of the village, just by a large limestone quarry. Many say this vineyard is more suited to red wine, however this wine and the 2017, for me, is as good as white wine can be. Niellon’s parcel is 0.52 hectares. A little higher toned and more pure than the Chenevottes. Grapefruit and mandarin citrus lift with nuances of jasmin and dried honeysuckle. The palate is salivating with honeysuckle, jasmin, lemon juice and a slight salinity. Very pure. A little bit of puppy fat. Very detailed which builds even more so, with time in the glass.

Pre Arrival Offer

We embrace the classic and historic 'en Primeur' system. It originated in Bordeaux and translates directly to 'of the first'. While in Bordeaux it gives the ability to a buyer to purchase the wine still in barrel, at The French Wine Centre it enables our clients to secure their preferred wines a month or two before the wine arrives on our shores. There is also a significant saving.
