Wine Expert Note:

The Domaine Michel Niellon Chardonnay Bourgogne is a delightful expression of a classic Burgundy white wine. It showcases the renowned craftsmanship of the Michel Niellon estate, known for producing exceptional Chardonnays. On the nose, this wine offers a bouquet of ripe orchard fruits, such as apples and pears, accompanied by subtle floral notes. There is also a hint of citrus, adding a refreshing touch to the aromatic profile. The palate is elegant and well-balanced, with a medium body and a smooth texture. Flavors of crisp green apples and juicy white peaches dominate, complemented by a touch of vanilla and a subtle mineral undertone. The acidity is vibrant, providing a lively and refreshing sensation. The finish is long and satisfying, leaving a lingering impression of fruit and a subtle hint of oak. Overall, the Domaine Michel Niellon Chardonnay Bourgogne is a superb representation of a well-crafted Burgundy Chardonnay, showcasing the region's terroir and the winemaker's expertise. This Chardonnay pairs wonderfully with a variety of dishes. Its vibrant acidity and fruit-forward character make it a great match for seafood, such as grilled shrimp or scallops. It also complements poultry dishes, particularly roasted chicken or turkey. For a vegetarian option, try pairing it with creamy pasta dishes or risotto. While enjoyable in its youth, the Domaine Michel Niellon Chardonnay Bourgogne has the potential to develop further complexity with some cellaring. It is recommended to drink it within 3-5 years of the vintage to fully appreciate its freshness and fruitiness.
