(AG92-94 points) A pulsating, energetic wine, Clair's 2012 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos du Fonteny impresses for its overall poise and sense of balance. Dark red cherry, plum, dried flowers and rocks are all woven together beautifully. The sheer depth of the fruit is going to make the 2012 difficult to resist young, but there is more than enough tannin and acidity to support aging.

(WA90-92 points) The 2012 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos du Fonteny is bridled with a very pure bouquet with wild strawberry and bergamot scents, a touch of mineralite emerging with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied, silky on the entry with fine structure towards the poised finish, hints of white pepper on the aftertaste. Very fine. - Neal Martin

Dense and silky but light on its feet, with lovely balance and life to its berry, violet and spice flavors. Finishes with sweet tannins and lingering dark fruits and flowers. Lovely aromatic wine with stuffing.

(BH90-92 points) A pure, elegant and restrained nose of both red and dark currant aromas are nuanced by notes of earth and a hint of underbrush.

(BH90-92 points) A pure, elegant and restrained nose of both red and dark currant aromas are nuanced by notes of earth and a hint of underbrush. There is plenty of minerality to the equally refined middle weight flavors that are supported by relatively fine-grained tannins on the punchy, detailed and quite serious finish. While the structure is fine it's dense and thus this will require at least a decade to be at its best.
