Decanter, 94 Points 

"The domaine owns a bit more than a hectare here, in three parcels, with the white at the top of the slope. The fruit is lightly pressed before being run into cask for fermentation and the result is spectacular, with notes of lemon curd pie, fresh cream and white flowers on the nose, and a lively, exuberant texture on the palate. A tour de force." 

Wine Advocate, 93 Points 

"The 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos Saint-Jean is showing very well, opening in the glass with scents of crisp yellow orchard fruit, white flowers, marzipan and fresh peach. Medium-bodied, bright and tensile, its satiny attack segues into a deep, lively core, concluding with a chalky finish. It was with sadness that I learned of the passing of Michel Niellon while this report was going to press. He must have been content, however, to leave the domaine in such good hands, as his son-in-law, Michel Coutoux, is routinely producing wines of impressively consistent quality and style. 2019 is another fine success, delivering beautifully balanced wines with plenty of concentration and cut. As readers may remember, house fingerprint here is distinctive, with a touch of toasty oak from Saint-Romain's Tonnellerie Gillet marking each cuvée and the wines dependably distinguishing themselves with lovely texture and concentration. This is a domaine in fine form today, and as I've written before, readers who have fallen out of touch with the wines are advised to reacquaint themselves with this excellent producer." 

Burghound, 92 Points 

"Here too the perfumed nose is markedly floral in character with additional notes of various white fleshed fruit and soft spice nuances. The delicious, intense and more vibrant and better detailed middle weight flavors possess better depth and persistence on the slightly drier finale. Lovely and a wine that should age well over the mid-term.  *Outstanding*
