"The 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos du Fonteny, a monopole of the domaine, has a beautiful bouquet with dark berry fruit, blackberry and light orange blossom scents. This just blossoms with a couple of swirls, displaying impressive vigor while maintaining detail. The palate is stunning: wonderful focus, so much tension and you can really feel the calcaire on the tensile finish. This represents an outstanding offering from Bruno and it comes highly recommended." Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #234

"This too is softly oaky with its intensely floral-suffused nose of exceptionally pure and ultra-fresh essence of red berries. The mouthfeel of the equally mineral-driven flavors is quite polished thanks to the fine grain of the moderately dense supporting tannins. This youthfully backward effort will require at least a few years of cellaring as it too is quite tightly wound today." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 69

"Bright ruby. Sweet raspberry fruit – quite opulent, and lively finish." JancisRobinson.com
