(94+) The 2013 Clos de la Truffière is flat out stunning at Domaine Niellon, as these old vines (which Monsieur Coutoux notes are “completely healthy and very different than the Bâtard”) have really produced a stunning young wine in this vintage. The stellar nose wafts from the glass in a fine blend of apple, pear, lime blossoms, a very complex base of chalky soil tones, incipient notes of butter and a fine base of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and very suave on the attack, with a great core, bright acids and outstanding length and grip on the perfectly balanced finish. This is one of the finest recent vintages of the Clos de la Truffière that I have tasted. (Drink between 2018-2040)

Tactile, penetrating and juicy, showing a light touch to its enticing citrus and orchard fruit flavors. Good material here, and the building finish suggests that this will develop nicely in bottle for at least a few years.

(WA90-92 points) The 2013 Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Chaumees has a touch more vivacity and citrus notes compared to the Maltroie alongside. The palate is smooth in the mouth, the acidity well judged and it crescendos toward a very harmonious and lightly honeyed finish that should be very seductive once in bottle. - Neal Martin

Burghound, June 2015
There is enough reduction present to flatten the fruit and as such I would strongly advise decanting this if you're tempted to try a bottle before it's 5 years of age.

There is enough reduction present to flatten the fruit and as such I would strongly advise decanting this if you're tempted to try a bottle before it's 5 years of age. There is very good richness to the generous and pure medium-bodied flavors that are blessed with an abundance of dry extract that coats the palate and buffers the firm citrus-infused acid spine on the beautifully long, delineated and intense finish. This is still very primary and I would again suggest that this be left in the cellar for at least 5 years first.
