2013 Domaine Michel Niellon Batard-Montrachet Grand Cru

Burgundy | Chardonnay

It has an exotic, candied bouquet comparing it directly with the Chevalier-Montrachet with lush passion fruit and almond scents, all nigh irresistible. The palate is rounded and exotic in the mouth but not overbearing, armed with gorgeous orange peel, pineapple and lemon zest notes and then plenty of passion fruit toward the vibrant finish.This is holding nothing back, unlike the Chevalier-Montrachet, and it will be difficult to resist in its youth.
