Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru La Romanée 2012


Free Delivery with Orders over £75

"The 2012 Fontaine-Gagnard Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru La Romanee always has the highest acidity level and takes the longest to ripen. It comes from a 0.36-hectare parcel of vines with an unknown age. It has a fragrant, very elegant bouquet with apricot blossom and veins of dried mango infusing the citrus fruit. The palate is crisp and taut, the minerality more pronounced with a taut, delineated, more linear finish than the Caillerets. This is an outstanding Chassagne-Montrachet." 92 Points. Neal Martin, Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate.

The steeply sloping, premier cru La Romanée vineyard has thin soils that are slightly pebbly and rich in fossils. It catches the sun in the morning but receives relatively little sunlight in the afternoon. As a result, it is always the last Chassagne-Montrachet vineyard to be harvested. This version spent 12 months in oak, approximately 30% of which was new.
