Fontaine-Gagnard, Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Romanee, 2018

$156.99
Available for Same Day Delivery (or Pickup) in Manhattan.
It's not just the evocative name, Romanee really is one of greatest Crus of Chassagne. It is everything Chardonnay: fruit (pears, berries), shooting star minerality, and hints of spice. F-G's utterly classical take on the wine is not to be missed.

Professional Reviews

BH 92
"Here too there are hints of smoke to the slightly riper aromas that flirt with the exotic on the lychee, white peach, spice and pretty white floral scents. There is better density to the caressing yet powerful flavors that possess a succulent mid-palate that contrasts with the lemony, clean and very dry finish. This is notably more tightly wound and is going to require at least some patience." -Allen Meadows

RP 93
"Wafting from the glass with aromas of pear, white flowers, beeswax and a light touch of reduction that might be derived from this sample bottle's Diam closure, the 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru La Romanée is medium to full-bodied, layered and muscular. Underpinned by lively acids, this is the most complete and concentrated premier cru in the range this year." -William Kelley
