2008 Michel Niellon Chassagne Montrachet Premier Cru
Clos de la Maltroie
Michel Niellon is a stunning producer for Chevalier Montrachet, I have tasted many times of it’s Chevalier Montrachet, consistently turned out to be a supreme wine. Clos de la Maltroie is a small holding of Niellon, getting hold of it can be difficult, thus we at Fine Wines snapped up whatever came along. Bouquet was a bit stony and lemony, what really shined was in its acidity; really stunning bright acidity that exemplified the Clos de la Maltroie terroir which was normally dull, the expression of the wine was a combination of acidity and ripe fruit. Slightly stony on the fruits and lean towards the style of Pomelo or lemon skins, not very expressive, and in fact slightly stony and dull. The overall impression is a welcoming balanced style, kudos to the winemaking charm of Neillon!
