Description :

A superlatively sophisticated, unbelievably complex and high-toned nose of white flower, spiced pear, limestone, lemon zest and lavender aromas continues onto the almost painfully intense, detailed and pure medium full flavors that culminate in an understated but cuts-like-a-knife finish that goes on and on.

Domaine Niellon Michel

Domaine Michel Niellon   Allen Meadows’s Burgendy reference :

"Michel Niellon describes the 2007 vintage as one where “it had all the hallmarks of an early, and thus very ripe, vintage that turned out to be early yet anything but really ripe. To be sure, the grapes weren’t under ripe but usually when you’re harvesting very early, it’s because the weather has been very hot.

Other than essentially having July arrive in April, the rest of the time the weather was cool, gray and wet, save for the last two weeks of August and the first half of September.

We picked relatively early, which is to say at the beginning of September and brought in normal yields with sugars that ran between 12 and 13% and firm if not aggressive acidities. The wines domaine Niellon are classic and remind me quite a bit of the 2004s. I personally prefer the 2006s as I like rather ripe wines but those who prefer classically styled wines will probably prefer the ‘07s.”

Notes de dégustation

Robert Parker : 91+ points
"The 2015 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru comprises of four barrels this year, one new and the other three one-year-old barrels (incidentally, it is never matured in 100% new oak). It has an austere, aloof bouquet despite vigorous swirling of my glass whilst I was chatting to winemaker Michel Coutoux. The palate is well balanced with a slight viscosity on the entry, notes of candied lemon peel, nectarine, dandelion and a pinch of spice towards the finish. It does not quite take off as I was expecting and I actually find as much pedigree in the Les Vergers and Chaumées this year. Still, let’s see what happens with bottle age.

Stephen Tanzer : 92 points
" Pale, green-tinged yellow. Pure but subdued aromas of lemon, pear, menthol, wild herbs and crushed stone. Sweet, silky and fine-grained, with white peach and pear flavors showing a captivating light touch. Really spreads out and lingers on the firm-edged finish. This is distinctly more brisk than it appeared to be from barrel a year age and will need at least a few years of patience."
