Fontaine-Gagnard - Burgund
The Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard is a relatively young winery and yet one of the big names in Burgundy. Founded in 1985 and today comprising 12 hectares of vines in the best locations of the Côtes de Beaune, they have worked their way to the top with a lot of talent and traditional winemaking. The jewels of the estate are plots in three Grand Crus, including the legendary le Montrachet, and twelve 1er Crus in Chassagne-Montrachet. In 2007, Celine Gagnard joined his parents' winery and improved other little things, for example the barrel and tank storage times were extended to give the wines more balance.
Thanks to their perfect balance, the Fontaine-Gagnard wines can be enjoyed when young, but they can also be aged for a long time, as befits a great Burgundy. The crystal clear purity with great complexity and abundance is impressive. Fantastic wines in the whole range.
