"An earthy and brooding nose combines notes of earth, dark berries, underbrush and oak. The rich and conspicuously mineral-inflected flavors possess a seductive mouth feel as there is both plenty of sap buffering the ripe structural elements. There is a mildly rustic character to the finish at present but in my experience Clos des Fontenys is one of the most elegant of the Gevrey 1ers and I suspect that this will become more refined with age."

"Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos du Fonteny 2011 has a more accomplished and complete nose compared to its peers in the flight, offering raspberry, briary, blackcurrant and mineral scents with a sense of confidence. The palate is medium-bodied with a pleasant, fleshy entry, well-judged acidity and clean and crisp strawberry and raspberry fruit. It finishes conservatively: linear and focused but without a peacock’s tail that would garner a higher score." Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
