This is plush and laced with peach, apple, oak spice and mineral flavors. Vibrant acidity keeps this focused as the elements play out on the long, green olive–, mineral- and spice-tinged finish. Best from 2020 through 2026.
The 2015 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jean, like the Champs Gain, was sampled directly from vat and showed the same reduction on the nose. The palate seemed to have a little more bite and acidity than the Champs Gain and it showed satisfying tension towards the finish, which conveyed energy that should be respected for the vintage. It is tight-lipped at the moment but there is certainly promise here.(NM)
Coutoux noted that this was the last wine bottled and not surprisingly there was enough residual sulfur still present to largely suppress the underlying fruit. The rich, indeed even opulent, medium-bodied flavors possess a caressing mouth feel that carries over to the sappy and delicious finish that is clean and relatively dry thanks once again to the notably citrus-tinged acidity.
(like the Champgains, this was bottled in November of '16 due to a later malolactic fermentation): Pale yellow. Aromas of pear, menthol and stone are less fruity than most of Niellon's other '15s. Juicy and tight on the palate, showing excellent cut to its lemon, pear and wet stone flavors. Finishes with a firm edge and good lift.
