2018 domaine fontaine-gagnard, chassagne-montrachet premier cru, la maltroie
Why We're Buying
Céline Fontaine has the magic touch when it comes to chardonnay. Her premier cru offering from La Maltroie is light and elegant with a core of melon, pear, and stone fruit. The touches of minerality and oak provide the depth it needs to hold up for years of aging.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru La Maltroie delivers a pretty bouquet of pear, waxy citrus rind and almond paste. Medium to full-bodied, its satiny attack segues into a nicely concentrated core that's underpinned by lively acids, concluding with a precise finish. (WK)
