Free Delivery with Orders over £100
Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Chassagne-Montrachet Les Caillerets 2008 has a splendid nose with some development. Lovely stoney minerality mingles with generous orchard fruit, apricots and honeydew melon. Good depth thanks to smokey minerality, nuttiness and gentle oak notes that are now fully integrated. Complex, medium-full body, rich and incredibly well balanced on the palate. Liquorice, oak, nuts, yellow orchard fruit mix with bright, fresh acidity lead into a very elegant, clean, and lengthy finish.
