Another painfully small parcel for Niellon at 0.22 hectares. Situated above La Cabotte and below Bouchard, this is their only plot within Puligny. Situated on the limestone plateau, it took explosives to be able to plant the vines in 1968 and 1972. Incredibly closed, almost an almost-non-existent nose upon opening. Coaxing the wine for 10 minutes it begins to open and show incredibly delicate smokiness with underlying fruit building. On the palate there is an impossibly long rainwater purity. Painfully intense nothingness that seems to go on for eternity. Incredible things to come.

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.
