Critical Acclaim

Wine Advocate 92 - The 2014 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Clos de Fonteny, the monopole of the domaine, has an easy going bouquet with raspberry and crushed strawberry fruit -- a bouquet reclining in its comfy armchair. The palate is well balanced and has more vigor. I like the purity here and the candied orange peel that give the finish that exotic touch, for those who prefer a more "daring" Gevrey. Drink and enjoy over the next 8-10 years.

Burghound 92 - Once again subtle but not invisible wood serves as a relatively neutral backdrop for the high-toned aromas of cool red currant, pomegranate, cherry and discreet earth nuances. There is a lovely sense of energy to the mineral-inflected and beautifully well-detailed medium weight flavors that deliver fine depth and length on the firm and mildly austere finale. Some patience will be required.

International Wine Cellar 91 - Bright palish red. Distinctly red aromas of cherry and rose petal. Sappy and perfumed, conveying lovely inner-mouth floral lift and noteworthy finesse. Nicely suave, fine-grained wine with smooth tannins and very good length. These vines are planted on soil rich in white marl, like Clair's Gevrey-Chambertin Cazetiers and Bonne-Mares, and routinely has the highest pH in the cellar (3. 7 in 2014). But this 2014 does not lack for energy.
