WINE ADVOCATE
The 2013 Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru les Vergers has a more reticent bouquet than the Maltroie at the moment and it demands more coaxing from the glass, but with encouragement there develops lovely passion fruit and apricot scents, unfolding with each swirl. The palate has a pleasant citrus and orange peel entry. It feels a little more backward compared to Niellon’s other 2013s but there is plenty of weight toward the finish, although I hope it develops more tension with time and therefore it deserved two or three years in bottle.

VINOUS
Pale yellow. A major step up in complexity from the village offering, showing a saline nuance to the aromas of orchard fruits and lime. Taut and delineated in the palate, with the pear and lime flavors conveying an impression of dusty extract. The saline finish offers lovely subtle length and grip. This will benefit from time in bottle.
