2008 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru La Maltroie, Domaine Fontaine Gagnard

This has a rich and slightly oily nose. On the palate it is more restrained and less opulent than the nose would suggest. Elegant and well balanced, with both good intensity and acidity. This is round and well tempered, with a dry finish and excellent purity.

2008 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru La Maltroie, Domaine Fontaine Gagnard
Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard

One of Burgundy’s most charming domaines, Fontaine-Gagnard is run by Celine Fontaine, with her parents Richard Fontaine and Laurence Gagnard. Richard founded the estate when he married Laurence: his first vintage was 1985, produced from his inlaws’ vineyards. However, this nearly never happened: the first time they met, he almost misidentified the 1978 Montrachet, the estate’s crown jewel, as Aligoté, due to its high acidity. Fortunately he kept his mouth shut, and Fontaine-Gagnard was born.
