Chassagne Caillerets, Domaine Fontaine Gagnard 2017
(from a crop level of 50 hectoliters per hectare): A hint of reduction to the aromas of pear, stone, menthol and herbs; a bit wild in a positive way. Dense, rich and sappy, with its touch of sweetness perfectly countered by crushed-stone minerality. At once broad and vibrant, with tactile flavors of grapefruit pith, lemon and flowers conveying a subtly salty character. Really resounds on the long back end.
