2013 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru La Maltroie, Domaine Fontaine Gagnard

Showing great energy and citrusy freshness to complement the honeyed, creamy texture in a perfectly balanced package, La Maltroie is excellent this year. It should be perfect to drink within 3 to 5 years with pan roasted sea bass. Delicious.

2013 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.
