"Niellon's son-in-law, Michel Coutoux, is routinely producing wines of impressively consistent quality and style... This is a domaine in fine form today, and readers who have fallen out of touch with the wines are advised to reacquaint themselves with this excellent producer." - William Kelley, Wine Advocate
Michel Niellon is a small domaine in Chassagne-Montrachet with only 7.5 hectares of vines including small holdings in Chevalier and Bâtard-Montrachet. Though they only have two small cellars to work out of, the old vines and Michel's winemaking skills produce some of the most extraordinary wines that they are considered one of the benchmark producers in Chassagne. Michel Niellon had worked with his father Marcel since the 1950s and created more than 50 vintages to date. Niellon prefers harvesting the grapes earlier than later and is often the first in the village to pick his grapes as he takes acidity into consideration first. He does not use herbicides and practice "lutte raisonnée" which means using chemical treatments only when absolutely necessary. Only about 20-30% new oak is used depending on the cuvee. The wines produced offer classic style and express the terroir of each vineyard while maintaining a good balance of minerality and rich, ripe fruits. Due to the low yields and high demand (especially from the US), supply is scarce so it is not an opportunity to be missed if you see their wines in the market.
