Domaine Fontaine- Gagnard, 1er Cru Les Vergers 2018

Domaine Fontaine- Gagnard, Chassagne-Montrachet, 1er Cru Les Vergers 2018

RRP £49.68

A Chassagne domaine with an excellent reputation and many small parcels, including three grands crus. Celine Fontaine has taken over from her father Richard and juggles winemaking with raising a young family. Toasty, nutty aroma, with a hint of crème brûlée. A satin and savoury flow across the palate is underscored by tight, stony sapidity. Really rather elegant and neat, with a firm line that carries through to a well-sustained finish and a hint of minty/herbal freshness and bitterness.
