"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."

"The 2011 Savigny-les-Beaune 1er Cru La Dominode comes from a particularly old parcel of vines over 100-years in age with some still on their own roots. It has an elegant bouquet with red currant and fresh strawberry scents that later offer engaging rose petal and orange blossom aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with a fine grip on the entry. There is good weight here, fleshy in texture with a smooth, caressing finish. Excellent." Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, Issue #208
