2012 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru La Maltroie, Domaine Fontaine Gagnard

There is a great density to this wine which follows up on the promise of an alluring nose. The pleasant richness in the mouth is complemented by the lifted acidity, demonstrating the effect of deeper soil at La Maltroie and the domaine’s style of purity and precision.

2012 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.
