The 2010 Chassagne-Montrachet La Grande Montagne is one of the most direct wines in the lineup. There isn’t much in the way of subtlety here. The Grande Montagne is all about rich, yellow toned fruit and a frank expression of the year. Still, I like the balance, as the wine is deep, but avoids excess heaviness. Anticipated maturity: 2012+. ||I was deeply impressed with the wines I tasted at Fontaine-Gagnard. The 2010s are rich, deep and racy, but also show tremendous transparency with regards to site and have a little more polish than is customary. Celine Fontaine told me she was very surprised by the concentration of the wines given the poor weather during the summer, but that, ultimately, it was the small size of the berries that played a big role in giving the wines their personalities. The harvest started on September 21. All of the 2010s were bottled in August 2011. Although I did not taste any of the reds, Fontaine also told me a number of the estate’s Pinot vineyards were heavily affected by the December 2009 frost and required replanting. eRobertParker.com.August, 2012
