Aromatic scents of lemon oil, mirabelle, crushed stone and spices. A step up in texture and concentration from the preceding premier crus, offering generous flavors of yellow peach and spices. Finishes impressively long and lively. This wine comes from stony hillside soil but the vines here were not stressed owing to their deep roots, Fontaine maintains.

In the same fashion as the Vergers there is an appealing lemon-lime character to the tea, floral and white orchard fruit aromas.

In the same fashion as the Vergers there is an appealing lemon-lime character to the tea, floral and white orchard fruit aromas. The cool, pure and markedly stony middle weight flavors deliver fine length on the clean, dry and focused finish. Unlike several of the prior wines, this is sufficiently tightly wound that a few years of bottle age would clearly be beneficial.

(91+) The 2015 Grande Montagne from the Fontaines is excellent and really shows a lot of stony minerality on both the nose and palate this year. As Céline Fontaine commented, “these vines are now twenty-five years of age and they are just starting to come into their own now and showing better minerality in the wine.” The bouquet is pure and classy, wafting from the glass in a mix of pear, tangerine, stony minerality, citrus blossoms and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and nascently complex, with fine grip and length on the backend, but not quite the same inherent elegance found in a few of the premier crus that preceded it in the tasting lineup.
