Domaine Michel Niellon Chassagne-Montrachet 2016

Member Review by Christy Canterbury MW:

A classic Chassagne village with fragrances of yellow plum, Bosc pear and Lily of the Valley. A fairly rich palate for a 2008 with a lingering creaminess.

How many village Chassagnes can you name that take 3 hours in the decanter to show their stuff. Niellon is a master.

Aromas of seashore and mineral signal this distinctive white. Apple, lemon, floral and spice accents mingle with the rich texture and bright structure, dovetailing on the crisp finish. Excellent length. Drink now through 2020.

Pale straw-yellow. Aromatic nose features pear and flowers. Smooth and light on its feet, with harmonious ripe acidity energizing the middle palate. With its attractive sugar/acid balance and firm spine, this is more vibrant than the 2012 village wine. Drink or hold. Coutoux noted that the yield here was almost 60 hectoliters per hectares, compared to 40 in 2012. But this wine has more charm.

Musky, slightly reduced aromas of pineapple, honey, flowers and stone. The fattest and sweetest of these 2003s, with the richest texture. But still not especially intense or gripping, and a bit blowsy and warm for this great grand cru. Finishes with ... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.
