2016 Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Les Caillerets" 6-Pack (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1542027 94 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2016 Caillerets from Céline Fontaine is an outstanding young bottle in the making, with all of the purity and precision of the vintage synthesized with the great signature of minerality of this great vineyard. The nose wafts from the glass in a youthful mix of pear, apple, lemon zest, limestone minerality, spring flowers and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with outstanding focus and grip, nascent complexity and great balance on the long and racy finish. Great juice in the making, but give this at least three or four years in the cellar to really start to blossom. 2021-2045. Inner quote mark (12/2017)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Chassagne Montrachet 1Er Cru les Caillerets had the highest natural alcohol level of the Chassagnes. There is fine mineralité on the nose, quite tensile with a subtle marine influence coming through with time. The palate is well balanced with a viscous opening, good energy here and the mineralité flourishing and lending tension all the way through to the finish, ginger on the aftertaste. This is the best premier cru from the domaine apart from their La Boudriotte. (NM) Inner quote mark (12/2017)
