Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard is one of the finest and most integral producers in the village of Chassagne-Montrachet. The domaine has its origin in the fine Gagnard-Delagrange holdings of fifty years ago, as the vineyards hail from the marriage of Richard Fontaine to Jacques Gagnard’s oldest daughter, Laurence Gagnard, in 1982. The Gagnard family is very close-knit, with much of the vineyard work shared by various branches of the family. The intiutive and graceful Céline Fontaine manages the the heart and soul of Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard -- the family's Chassagne-Montrachets, which includes a fine clutch of premier crus as well as the grand crus of Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet, Bâtard-Montrachet and Montrachet itself

 

Bright ruby red fruits lift off the glass initially,  aromas of black cherries, wild herbs and touches of violet. The fruit becomes focused towards darker fruit on the palate - firm yet generous tannin that are sumptuous, but still linger. Incredible value Burgundy. -CWS
