Lot #16. Michel Niellon Chassagne-Montrachet Clos de la Maltroie 2009

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 91+ JG.
"The 2009 Clos de la Maltroie showed just a touch more ripeness on both the nose and palate than the Champgains. The bouquet has a decidedly tropical edge to its mélange of pineapple, apples, sweet corn, lovely minerality, spring flowers and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and generous on the attack, with a surprisingly vigorous base of minerality, good focus and cut and a most impressively long and complex finish. Again, I am really struck by how much this young wine reminds me of Monsieur Niellon’s 1989s." John Gilman, View From the Cellar, Nov/Dec 2010, Issue #30
Notes: Very lightly scuffed label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $50
