PRODUCER

DOMAINE FONTAINE GAGNARD

Ex-Air Force engineer Richard Fontaine has managed a remarkable feat of excellence in his second career. In a little over 20 years, Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard has become one of the very top estates in Chassagne Montrachet. However, the thoughtful, hard-working and modest Richard is no seeker of fame and acclaim preferring to concentrate on his vines and his cellar. For sheer quality, terroir definition, balance and all-round drinkability, these wines are virtually unbeatable, especially at the price. A top source.

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR YOU

TASTING NOTES

This gorgeous Chassagne clearly standout for its intensity and inner balance. The Clos de Murées is a family Monopole, where vines were planted in 1970 in a calcaire-rich soil that imparts a clear mineral vein to the Chardonnay produced in this small slice of heaven. An epiphany of ripe peach and pear notes rise from the glass, all wrapped in...

TASTING NOTES

This wine has a slightly different label, “Leflaive & Associés” as it comes from purchased grapes. The vineyard in question  is high up on the hillside on the Saint Romain side and faces east. The soils are thin and chalky, characteristics which are expressed in this wine which is lifted and pure. The 2017 has a refreshing lime note and...

TASTING NOTES

Sheltered by the great monoliths of Solutré and Vergisson, the terraced slopes of Pouilly-Fuissé produce some of the greatest whites in Burgundy. The appellation extends across four communes: Solutré-Pouilly, Fuissé, Chaintré and Vergisson. The clay and limestone terroir of Vergisson gives these wines a particularly complex character. Armit Wines

TASTING NOTES

The 2013 vintage was very difficult vintage to manage, with a heavily reduced crop after the hail. This superb White Burgundy has a lovely perfume, and very Puligny-Montrachet in style. The really heightened fruit and exciting aromatics dance across the palate. This is a marvellous wine from a master winemaker and will be excellent to drink now after a short...

TASTING NOTES

Delicious ripe, smoky yellow apples on the nose show depth and complexity.  The palate is rich and creamy and underscored by a textural, chalky minerality.   The wine is elevated by a vibrantly pure, citrus acidity. The finish is long, concentrated and precise. Drink from 2020.Armit Wines

TASTING NOTES

The Maltroie displays a very subtle nose with pure yellow citrus fruits and hints of buttercups and summer flowers. There is a lovely richness of ripe citrus, apple and stone fruits on the palate with good acidity and a slight oaky sweetness. Hints of spice and a delicate note of freshly cut green ginger provide great length. Drink from 2015.

TASTING NOTES

A monopole of the Domaine in the heart of the village. Notes of ripe white and yellow stone fruits on the nose are kept in check by a strong mineral thread running through the wine and creating a happy, harmonious ensemble. This may broaden out a little more in bottle but today it shows good shape and enough restraint to...

The Vergers has a lovely rich, yet clean and fresh palate and seems ready to drink now but will age extremely well. It displays lovely ripe apple and bright refreshing citrus notes on the nose with sweeter yellow plum and fig characters coming through. On the palate, lively grapefruit characters are balanced by a lovely, salty mineral tang on the...
