The 2012 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Chaumees has an attractive chalk-scented bouquet with fine definition and vigor. This opens up nicely in the glass, revealing subtle sea spray scents. The palate is well-balanced with a vigorous opening: pink grapefruit, citrus lemon and a touch of nectarine that fan out towards the finish. This is one of Niellon's better premier crus in 2012.

Excellent stuff, young but lively, full of energy and verve. Little bit of caramel and lots of fruit still. Oak well integrated and gave it weight. Really good stuff from Niellon

Beautiful. Tense. Vaguely reminds of Viognier, but maybe that's just the coastal breeze. Cheese rind meets stone fruit. Amazing
