Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Batard Montrachet 2011


95 Points Burghound

"Comment: Don't Miss! -This beauty possesses the most complex aromatic profile in the range with its broad ranging nose of citrus zest, white flowers, yellow orchard fruit, fennel and spice nuances. The silky yet muscular flavors display imposing size and weight with excellent mid-palate concentration and plenty of minerality on the balanced, driving and almost painfully intense finish. T .....

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Bourgogne Blanc 2010

"The 2010 Bourgogne Blanc is a gorgeous wine at this level, with quite a bit of density and power, but also lovely minerality. This is a Bourgogne that fights above its weight. It is an excellent choice for readers who like firm, classically built Burgundies. Anticipated maturity: 2012+." Wine Advocate

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Bourgogne Rouge 2011

"Red fruits, some herbal undertones like capsicum and weeds, yet perfumed and appealing. Light bodied, strawberry fruit, assertive acidity, light but too grippy tannin and a barely ripe strawberry finish. It’s a nice wine for bistro drinking, but not competitive in the Pinot Noir world at the price." 89 Points Points Wine Front "Comment: Outstanding Top value. An ex .....

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Chassagne Montrachet 2010

"A great introduction to the estate’s wines, the 2010 Chassagne-Montrachet shows gorgeous detail and generous inner sweetness for a village-level wine. The more delicate, feminine side of Chassagne comes through in the glass. A gentle spiced note adds complexity on the round, generous finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012+." 89 Points Wine Advocate "Comment: Outstanding. &n .....

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Boudriotte 2010


91 Points Wine Advocate

"The 2010 Chassagne-Montrachet La Boudriotte is deep, plush and layered, yet also retains some of the grace and weightlessness of the best wines here. Clean, saline notes buffer the fruit in this powerful, insistent Chassagne. The Boudriotte stands out for its big, broad-shouldered personality. Anticipated maturity: 2013+." 91 Points Wine Advocate "This is notably more elegant than .....

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Caillerets 2010


95 Points Wine Front

"Finesse is the key when it comes to the 2010 Chassagne-Montrachet Les Caillerets. The Caillerets is all about details and nuance. As such, its subtleties are easily missed, but they are very much there. This is a Chassagne that captures all of the elegance and refinement that is possible in the village. Perfumed, floral notes and a touch of honey wrap around the finish. The Caillerets is eas .....

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru La Romanee 2011


92 Points Burghound.com

"Comment: Sweet Spot Outstanding - This is the first wine to display noticeable SO2 and it's enough to dominate the nose at present. There is impressive richness to the broad-shouldered yet refined and elegant medium-bodied flavors that brim with plenty of palate coating dry extract. Despite the succulence of the mid-palate there is excellent delineation on the citrus-infused, intense and .....

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Vergers 2010


92 Points Burghound

"The 2010 Chassagne-Montrachet Les Vergers is another pretty, delicate wine laced with expressive floral and mineral notes. Medium in body, the Vergers impresses for its understated personality and cool, incisive minerality. It could benefit from another year or two in bottle, if not more. The intensely saline finish leaves a lasting impression. Anticipated maturity: 2013+." 91 Points Wi .....

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Criots Batard Montrachet 2011


93 Points Burghound.com

"Criots, because of its amphitheater-like shape that heats up, often is quite exotic. This version is not an exception though in this case it's less than usual as the yellow orchard fruit and dried floral aromas are wonderfully fresh. There is excellent volume to the focused, detailed and powerful medium weight plus flavors that brim with plenty of mouth coating dry extract that imparts a .....

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Pommard 1er Cru Les Rugiens 2011


91 Points Burghound.com

"Comment: Outstanding - This is slightly more complex with its equally elegant nose of various wild red berries that enjoy added breadth in the form of earth, stone and spice nuances. There is excellent verve to the intensely mineral-driven and overtly powerful flavors that enjoy fine mid-palate density as well as outstanding length on the moderately austere finish. This will also require up .....

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Pommard 1er Cru Rugiens 2010


93 Points Wine Front

"From Les Rugiens-Haut part of the vineyard. Has some rocky, clay-limestone stuff going on, but also a high proportion of iron oxide, in red soil, or Rugiens, so to speak. Lively bouquet of Turkish delight, mocha and morello cherry. Sweet, almost, but a touch of garrigue too. A delicate palate weight here, the wine feels lacy and pure, finishing dusty and a touch crisp. Mouthwatering acidity .....

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Volnay 1er Cru Clos Des Chenes 2011


90 Points Burghound.com

"As one might reasonably expect, this is both more elegant and more complex with an exceptionally attractive nose that combines red berry fruit liqueur, violets, wet stone and plenty of fresh earth nuances. There is good punch and solid power to the rich, vibrant and beautifully well-detailed middle weight flavors that brim with minerality before culminating in an intense, persistent and well .....
