Tasting Notes

Strong petrol and quinine influences can be found on the apple, pear and resin-suffused nose. The exceptionally rich yet more sophisticated middle weight plus flavors possess plenty of punch and remarkably given the opulent mid-palate, good detail on the impressively long and complex finish. Note that this generously proportioned effort could easily be enjoyed young if that's your preference yet it has the stuffing to reward up to a decade of cellaring.

Score: 92Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (75), June 2019

From the lieu-dit Fairendes, the 2017 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru La Boudriotte wafts from the glass with notes of pear, lemon, iodine and dried white flowers. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, pure and tangy, with an elegant, focused profile and an open-knit core. Pretty and charming, this will win friends in its youth.

Score: 92William Kelley, Wine Advocate, January 2019

(from red soil in the lieu-dit Les Fairendes; one of the three sets of vines here is 100 years old, according to Fontaine): Bright, light yellow. Vibrant perfume of lemon peel and lime blossom. Dense, supple and silky, offering excellent definition to its citrus, floral and powdered stone flavors. Spreads out and mounts slowly on the echoing, rising finish.
