Price: $138.66 excl. GST
- Tasting Notes
A bright, cool and exceptionally pretty array of various red berries, wet stone, earth and discreet spice nuances leads to intense, vibrant and refreshing medium weight flavors that display plenty of minerality. There is a lovely saline character to the firm, sleek and beautifully balanced finish that will require at least 6 years of cellaring to soften and this is unlikely to reach its apogee before 10 to 12 years have passed.
– Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Score: 89-92
The 2013 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Clos du Fonteny has an abiding confit-like bouquet: blackcurrants and freshly picked raspberries, chalky scents developing in the glass after. The palate is medium-bodied with quite rigid tannins, masculine and tight at the moment but there is still plenty of energy on the finish. Give this a year or two in bottle.
