Complex and absorbing. The palate is very well balanced with fine, ripe tannins, juicy redcurrant and raspberry with a fine, filigree finish. This Fonteny is imbued with such panache and class that it is nigh impossible to resist.

A rich, supple red, this is also fresh and juicy, featuring cherry, strawberry and spice flavors. It's balanced, approachable now, yet vibrant and lively on the finish. Best from 2014 through 2027. 15 cases imported. –BS

This is an especially fleshy, textured Gevrey. The showy personality of the vintage comes through, but there is also plenty of underlying structure and vibrancy. I especially like the intensity of the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029. - Antonio Galloni

Medium red. Wild gamey nose offers redcurrant rose petal and hints of leather and game.

Wild gamey nose offers redcurrant rose petal and hints of leather and game. Silky and sweet but with nice acid definition serving to highlight the elegant fresh flavors of dark fruits leather and game. Lovely high-pitched flavors of spicy high notes and flowers carry through to the supple finish. A bit like a smaller-scaled Charmes-Chambertin. Incidentally Chrisitian Serafin is convinced that later racking preserved the freshness of his '09s.

Here the nose is not quite as ripe though it is airier and more refined with a pretty mix of very fresh red berry fruit that is cut with hints of earth and humus that continue onto the precise and pure flavors that possess a firm minerality that continues onto the energetic balanced and impressively long finish. As is typically the case this is an elegant Gevrey 1er that isn't quite as complex as the Corbeaux but is every bit as long. A choice. Outstanding.
