Niellon's 2015 Chevalier Montrachet Grand Cru is superb, opening with a lovely nose of pastry cream, preserved lemon, beeswax and toasted nuts, framed by new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, concentrated and textural, with a glossy attack, a deep mid-palate, and a bright, lightly grippy finish. While this is a powerful, dramatic Chevalier Montrachet it's very nicely balanced.
This classy, elegant white is all about the perfume. Lime blossom, hazelnut, apple and spice aromas and flavors are the hallmarks. Finishes with length and intensity, but the show is all up front. Gets better and better with air, showing potential.
