Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Chassagne-Montrachet Rouge 2008 has bright cherry and raspberry fruit on the nose, along with a little oak spice. The silky palate is full of more ripe, cherry and berry fruit, all held in check by ripe tannins and an elegant touch of Pinot Noir's typical earthy, beetroot character.

Although today Chassagne-Montrachet is known for its exceptional white wines, historically it was the reds of the region that were held in higher esteem. The clay and sand soil over limestone is actually better suited to growing Pinot Noir than Chardonnay and, although much less common than previously, some extremely fine red Chassagne-Montrachet is still produced. This village example from Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard is one of them.
