Cellar/Tasting Notes
"The greatest exponent of Chassagne-Montrachet? Probably." --Wine Advocate

Michel Niellon's Grands Crus are astronomically priced and nearly impossible to find. His Premier Cru Chassagne Montrachet La Maltroie is a retail rarity as well, but costs a fraction of GCs. Lemony yellow in the glass, restrained aromas of tropical fruits, with a hint of oak and a long, classy finish.
Burghound (BH): 90
This is quite reduced and definitely needs some aeration if you're going to try a bottle before it has a chance to cellar for a few years first. There is plenty of energy to the cool and restrained medium-bodied flavors that display both a lovely mouth feel as well as fine delineation on the ever-so-mildly austere finish that also evidences a hint of warmth.
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 91+
Bright, pale yellow with a green tinge. Soil-driven, precise aromas of pear, clove oil and smoky minerality. Minerally and tightly wound, with good stony cut to its lemon and menthol flavors. Finishes juicy, gripping and long, with noteworthy saline minerality. Strong juice, but dominated by its structure in the early going.
