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.

TASTING NOTES

Overt notes of vine peaches on the nose, this is open for business with a sunny disposition and a little exotic touch of lychee. On the palate it tightens up a little, showing its more serious side. Unctuous textures from extra glycerol again belie the warmth of the site but there is plenty of freshness too on the finish. A...

TASTING NOTES

The village Chablis comes from several parcels all of which add intensity and character to the wine. The 2017 has an aromatic bouquet of white flowers with a vibrant palate of green apples balanced by an energetic mineral freshness and a hint of white pepper. Perfect from release. Armit Wines

TASTING NOTES

An east to south facing vineyard with deep calcerous soils, the 2017 a very expressive wine with mouthwatering white peach and ripe green apple flavours. There is some real concentration here combined with lovely freshness which suggests good ageing potential. Drink from 2018.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

A refreshing and energetic wine with lovely pure fruit, there is an added tension and direction here. A bright bouquet of white stone fruits leads to a refreshing palate with lively green apple flavours underscored by a lean mineral character which leads to a long finish.

TASTING NOTES

Appealing and expressive, this wine has a pretty bouquet of white flowers with a hint of acacia honey and dried fruits. On the palate, succulent white peach and stone fruit characters are balanced by a chalky mineral quality which gives a sense of controlled elegance.

TASTING NOTES

This is often the site that Richard picks first as the old vines here invariably offer some of the ripest fruit from his various holdings. There is certainly additional richness and weight here but very well counterbalanced but the acidity of the vintage. Orchard fruits and a creaminess on the palate make this already very appealing. Drink from 2011.

TASTING NOTES

A prominent vineyard in the centre of the village, next to the Church, Maltroie is a very complete wine and this was an exceptional showing. Stonefruits, orange blossoms and a fragrant honey on the nose with the depth of old vines really showing on the palate. There is a delicate spiciness which just adds more character and although there is...

TASTING NOTES

Subtle notes of ginger and cinnamon combine with the soft, peachy fruit. The acidity lifts the wine carrying it forward with energy and purpose. Less aromatic than the Vergers but with greater depth and density, this is a complete wine that is often one of the best insider-secrets in the village. Drink from 2012.
