Niellon’s 2010 Chassagne-Montrachet Les Chaumees wraps around the palate with nectarines, flowers, spices and mint. It shows the richness and viscosity of the vintage, but with brighter, more floral shades of fruit that avoid heaviness. Like all the Niellon wines in 2010, the Chaumees is medium in body, but it nevertheless possesses fine intensity and balance. A hint of sweet spices lingers on the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012+.
