Productinformation

Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard is a wine estate in Chassagne-Montrachet has about 12ha of vineyards spread over 22 different appellations. Largely divided between several Premier crus and Grand Crus in Chassagne-Montrachet. They also own small plots in other areas, including Volnay and Pommard.

The house is descended from the famous Gagnard family and is currently managed by Céline Fontaine and her family. Fontaine-Gagnard is best known for their white wines, which consequently comprise 75% of production. Céline likes to let things happen naturally in the cellar and vineyards, it is what it is and what it is, is good. The wines are elegant and sleek, often with beautiful floral character. The wines offer everything one looks for in Chassagne-Montrachet and more.

La Romanée is a premier cru vineyard(3.4ha) located high on the slopes just south of the village of Chassagne-Montrachet. Due to erosion and gravity, the limestone soil at this altitude is light and gravelly. So well-drained and nutrient-poor -ideal for grape growing. This is reflected in the wines that are concentrated and fleshy with mineral notes, generally medium-bodied, peach, almond and a bit of honeysuckle.

The wines may also be named La Grand Montagne, given its location so high on the hill, this is a more obvious appellation. The name La Romanée (gypsy) is common in the Côte d'Or and should not be confused with the Premier Cru vineyard La Romanée in Gevrey-Chambertin or the much more prestigious Grand Crus La Romanée, Romanée-Conti and Romanée-Saint-Vivant in Vosne-Romanée.
