Domaine Michel Niellon, Chassagne-Montrachet Les Champgains 1er Cru 1996

Domaine Michel Neillon Chassagne Champgains 1996 #1

Medium green-gold color.  Capacious and succulent on the nose: ripe green and yellow tropical fruit, Chassagne herb, pennyroyal, leesy bee pollen.  A resiny quality on the palate, medium-full body and concentration: bosc pear, pineapple, passionfruit, lemon crème.   A lactic, seemingly calcium-rich acidity and minerality. Firm, grippy and long. Last bottle on a case. A stylish Champgains. Now – 2016.
