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. - William Kelley

This too was quite heavily reduced and again I strongly recommend allowing this 30 minutes or so in a decanter first if you're going to crack a bottle young. The powerful and impressively concentrated broad-shouldered flavors brim with both sappy dry extract as well as plenty of minerality that suffuses the wonderfully complex and persistent finish. I wouldn't describe this as a typical Niellon Chevalier but it is certainly a dramatic and high-quality wine.

Pure but subdued aromas of lemon, pear, menthol, wild herbs and crushed stone. Sweet, silky and fine-grained, with white peach and pear flavors showing a captivating light touch. Really spreads out and lingers on the firm-edged finish. This is distinctly more brisk than it appeared to be from barrel a year age and will need at least a few years of patience.
