Domaine Michel Niellon
These beautiful wines are consistently among the very best in Chassagne. Their understated intensity and rich poise are testament to the skill and sensitivity of Michel Niellon. No whistles and bells here: the cellars are spotlessly clean but small and serviceable, and Niellon himself is self-effacing, respectful of his vineyards, and loyal to his devoted customers. The five Chassagne Premiers Crus (all made in tiny quantities) include a sumptuous Les Chaumees, but even his basic Village wine is exemplary stuff and a wise buy. Grands Crus Chevalier and Batard-Montrachet are simply outstanding.
