|Brand||Domaine Georges Noëllat|
"Deep fruit tones of plum and cherry mingle with hints of smoked meats and spices, introducing Cheurlin's 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Fonteny, a medium to full-bodied, fleshy and charming wine that's one of the more giving and immediate of the domaine's premiers crus. Built around powdery tannins, it concludes with a sapid finish." William Kelley Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 92 points (2018 vintage) Drink 2025-45
The 2020 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Fontenys ler Cru is very elegant on the nose with vivacious redcurrant and cranberry scents, wilted rose petal and light touches of crushed stone. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannins, strict and focused, quite mineral driven with a touch of black pepper on the finish that fans out nicely. Excellent.
