2015 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru, Fontaine-Gagnard

A terroir that’s always a touch riper than Le Montrachet itself, this is opulent and already quite open. Floral with notes of apricot and quince, the creamy texture builds with a stony, intense, pure finish.

2015 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru, 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.
