DECANTER: "Fonteny is a comparatively rare Premier Cru in Gevrey-Chambertin, which is a shame because it's very well located next to Ruchottes- and Mazis-Chambertin. Facing north and east, it’s a comparatively fresh site chez Dugat-Py that has produced a lacy, delicate Pinot Noir in 2018, with notes of fresh tobacco, pepper spice and wild strawberry tart embellished by 75% whole clusters and 50% new wood."
ANTONIO GALLONI: "The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Fonteny 1er Cru was showing just a little reduction on the nose, but there is plenty of vibrant red fruit underneath that should spring forth once in bottle. The harmonious palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, very fine acidity and quite a structured, dense finish that has a saline touch. Great potential here."
THE WINEADVOCATE: "One of the more gourmand wines in the range this year is the 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Fonteny, a layered and enveloping wine that wafts from the glass with aromas of raspberries, plums, sweet spices, candied peel, rose petals and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, deep and velvety, with fine concentration, a nicely integrated chassis of powdery structuring tannins and lively balancing acids, it has turned out beautifully."
