Domaine Michel Niellon, Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru 2008

Neillon Chevalier 2006

Atherton Wine Imports, Menlo Park CA.

Lemon yellow, touch of gold, from a .22 ha parcel of vines planted in ’62 and ’68.  Hawthorn sap, toasted beignet and the white fruit of ’08.  Steel and acid, laced like a corset, and the finish kicks and vibrates.  Give it another 2+.  Now – 2025+.

  1. Your descriptions are so evocative and ripe with imagery, you should be a novel writer. I have also found your descriptions to be spot on.
