    Curiously this displays some oak toast, which is unusual for a Niellon wine even in its youth, which frame botrytis and honey notes. The flavors are nicely dense if not particularly complex at this point but there is good balance which should permit the wine to improve for another 2 to 3 years but drink well all its life.­

    Niellon's 1992s are all fat, ripe, concentrated wines. The tightest wines among the 1992s are the Chassagne-Montrachet-Les Vergers and Chevalier-Montrachet. The Chassagne-Montrachet-Les Vergers is of grand cru quality, and the 1992 is the wine highest in acidity and firmest in structure. Large-scaled, with an inner core of sweet, ripe, unctuous fruit, it is unevolved and tight. Cellar it for 2-3 years and drink it over the following decade.

    Still very good life and richness

Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
