Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Chassagne-Montrachet Rouge 2015


Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Chassagne-Montrachet Rouge 2015 is moderately bodied and a really great offering from Celine Fontaine, a true testament to the wines of this estate. This is only a lowly village wine but it drinks well above its station in life. Plenty of red and black fruits with fine tannins and great elegance. Pure and well worth buying.

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 villages example from Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard is one of them.
