Fontaine Gagnard Chassagne Montrachet Maltroie 2016

Fontaine-Gagnard

Case Format: 6x75cl

Fontaine-Gagnard – the Domaine was born in 1985 from the vineyard holdings of the Gagnard-Delagrange estate which was divided between two daughters when they married. Richard Fontaine, a former air force engineer, married Laurence, the daughter of Jacques and Marie-Josephe Gagnard, and their extremely capable daughter Céline is now working alongside them. Farming 12 hectares of vines mostly in Chassagne-Montrachet, with some parcels in Volnay and Pommard, Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard’s excellent reputation is based upon the especially high quality of its white wines.

Bottled. So mealy and creamy on the nose it is almost savoury but there’s also a rich seam of lemon fruit. Deep and long and full in the mouth. Perhaps just a little bit brash in its flavourfulness. Intense and long. (JH)

The 2016 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru La Maltroie exhibited a pleasant reduction on the nose, behind which lies pleasing waxy, linseed aromas that gently unfold in the glass. The palate is pretty with a lively entry, hints of peach skin and nectarine, well balanced with good volume on the finish. Drink over the next four or five years. Six barrels produced compared to 19 in 2017!
