Michel Niellon operates out of two absurdly small cellars in Chassagne, producing quite simply sublime wines. He has only 6 hectares of vines, which include small holdings in Chevalier and Bâtard-Montrachet. Old vines and low yields give these wines their intensity, along with Niellon`s supreme winemaking skills.
Supply is severely rationed due to the small size of the domaine and Niellon`s huge following in the United States. But, for those lucky enough to secure some bottles, the rewards are immense.
Wines sold "In Bond" (including BBX) or “En Primeur” are not available for immediate delivery and storage charges may apply.
Duty and VAT must be paid separately before delivery can take place.
Bottle 12 x 75cl
In Chassagne the crop was reduced by small, cumulative incidents: spring frost, especially on the Puligny side; difficult flowering, with coulure and millerandage; three doses of hail; and a bit of midsummer grilling on top. So the crop chez Niellon is at least 30% down. Michel Coutoux, who now runs his father-inlaw’s domaine, is pleased to have picked early and the excellent quality of his wines show that this was the right decision for them in 2012. They were bottled in September.
