2019 Chassagne-Montrachet, Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard

This is a rich and nutty expression of the village; full and energetic, with a ripe nectarine character and a salty acidity on the balanced finish. As ever, a benchmark Chassagne from one of our favourite producers, and excellent value.

2019 Chassagne-Montrachet, 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.
