Domaine Michel Niellon, Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru 1999

Niellon Chevalier 1999

Niellon Chevalier 1999 #2

Fifteen years on tasting.

Lemon yellow with a golden sheen.  Noble, mineral-drenched stone-fruit, with a nectar savor and a giving sweetness.  Lilac, toasted-lees, asian-pear, cox’s-orange and lemon-oil, enveloping and persistent.  Still electro-magnetic at the end, although the lattice of minerality feels more finessed now (it thundered in its youth).  At full-maturity; for drinking soon.
