Winemaker Notes

Sourced from several parcels, totaling just under two hectares; Michel is often the first to pick in his area, preferring good acidity for freshness in the wines. The vines were planted in 1963 and 1993. This is full-bodied, with the classic Chassagne aromas of ripe yellow orchard fruit and resin.

Wine Spectator
A minerally expression drives this sleek white, whose flavors evoke white peach, white flowers and citrus oil. Light-bodied and intense, with fine length.

Domaine Michel Niellon, Chassagne-Montrachet, Cote de Beaune, Cote d'Or, Burgundy, France
Michel Niellon, who began working with his father Marcel in the 1950's, has crafted more than 50 vintages of extraordinary wines. The father-son team began domaine-bottling in the 1960’s and soon after, their 4-hectare estate was considered one of the very best in the village. Since 1991, Michel has shared vineyard and winemaking duties with his son-in-law, Michel Coutoux. Recently, Michel’s grandson Mathieu Bresson joined the winery as well. Today the winery has 7.5 hectares of vines, all in Chassagne-Montrachet. “We plow the vineyards for weed control and don’t use herbicides. For pest and mildew control, we practice lutte raisonnée,” explains Coutoux. Niellon does not like to wait too long before harvesting the grapes: it is preferable, he says to pick earlier rather than later. “We take acidity into consideration first. Often we are the first in the village to pick at harvest time,” Niellon. Fermentations happen spontaneously in stainless steel tanks. After the primary fermentation, the wine is moved to barrels for malolactic and aging. About 25% of the barrels are new and the total amount of new oak ranges from 20-30% depending on the cuvée. Niellon is a benchmark producer in the village of Chassagne and the wines have a classic style, expressing the terroir of each vineyard, striking a balance of crisp minerality with rich and ripe fruit.
