2019 Domaine Bruno Clair Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos du Fonteny

$149.99

Vinous 92-94 pts! The 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos du Fonteny 1er Cru, a monopole of 0.67 hectares, has a tightly wound bouquet that opens with aeration: brambly red fruit mixed with light loamy and woodland scents. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, very mineral-driven with an almost flinty, stern and strict just like a Ruchottes on the finish. Excellent, but one for serious Burgophiles. (Drink between 2023 - 2040)

Decanter (Charles Curtis) 94 pts! Fonteny is the northern continuation of Mazis, and Clair’s 0.68ha monopole is the Clos du Fonteny at the top of the slope, in thin white marl soils over the limestone. 40% whole clusters are used in the fermentation and the wine ages in 30% new casks for 18 months. The result shows a perfumed red cherry fruit aroma, with bright floral notes, firm tannins and a crisp but tightly wound texture on the palate. (Drink between 2024 - 2039)
