2018 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru La Romanée, Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard

A premier cru that’s undoubtedly at the very top of its classification. Slightly shy on the nose, it’s on the palate that this really shows off. Notes of crushed rocks, a hint of blossom, and so much texture. Awesome.

2018 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru La Romanée, 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.
