2018 Domaine Bruno Clair Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Clos du Fonteny"

SKU #1552653 92-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos du Fonteny 1er Cru comes from the domaine’s monopole. It has a well-defined, quite leafy bouquet that is a little timid at the moment compared to its siblings. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins, a mixture of red and blueberry fruit and superb salinity and tension on the elegant finish. Recommended - one of Clair's hidden gems as everyone goes for the Clos Saint-Jacques! (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A cool, pure and elegant nose consists of aromas that mostly derive from the red side of the fruit spectrum that include notes of red currant raspberry and even a whiff of pomegranate. The racy, intense and beautifully delineated medium weight flavors possess focused power on the bitter cherry pit-inflected finish. Refined though this may be, the tannins are fine but firm and this will need plenty of time to resolve the supporting structure. Inner quote mark (1/2020)

K&L Notes

92-95 points Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy: "Deep purple with a lush nose, explosive stuff in a juicy ultra-raspberry style. There is a huge amount of fruit here which has not lost its natural finesse. The most Chambolle of Gevreys! Love the aftertaste!"
