Michel Niellon, who began working with his father Marcel in 1957, has crafted more than 50 vintages of extraordinary wines. From the original 4-hectare estate in Chassagne-Montrachet, Michel has built a notable reputation, creating rich, ripe premiers and grands crus white Burgundies as well as a small amount of excellent premier cru red. Today, three generations of the Niellon family currently work at the domaine. With the help of his son-in-law, Michel Coutoux, who joined him in 1991, Niellon has increased the estate’s production by buying new vineyards and building a larger winery. His grandson, Matthieu Bresson, also joined the winery, after graduating from La Lycée Viticole in Beaune. Each generation contributes their unique knowledge and expertise to create the finest wines.
