2011 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru La Maltroie, Domaine Fontaine Gagnard

La Maltroie is situated on a deeper soil which translates into a richer, broader style, albeit with the purity and precision inherent in Richard Fontaine’s wines. Fruit from 50 year old vines contributes a concentration, density of flavour and texture which amplifies in the mouth and lingers on a long finish.

2011 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.
