The 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jean is one of the highlights of the Niellon portfolio this year, unwinding in the glass with notes of pear, lemon, toast, nutmeg and subtle smoke. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, satiny and concentrated, with terrific depth, racy acids and a long, stony finish. 1992 was the first vintage for these vines, Niellon's holdings here having previously been planted entirely to Pinot Noir, and they are clearly hitting their stride today: it's the finest white Clos Saint-Jean I've tasted from this domaine. William Kelley – The Wine Advocate

Intense aromas of lime blossom, white peach, oyster shell and smoke introduce this sleek, vibrant white. Creamy in texture and harmonious, this finishes with echoes of white flowers, lime and pastry. Drink now through 2024. 70 cases imported. — BS – Wine Spectator

Dry, textural and highly savoury style with a bitter twang that leaves the palate somewhat parched. Concentrated and tense. Very structural and sharp. For acid junkies. (RH) Jancis Robinson

A gentle touch of wood sets off aromas of green fruit, citrus, petrol and a similar whiff of soft floral nuances. There is both good volume and richness to the middle weight flavors that also exude a subtle minerality on the focused, intense and impressively lengthy finish. This isn't quite as complex as the Verges but it's still excellent. AM, Burghound
