Domaine Bruno Clair Gevrey-Chambertin Clos du Fonteny Premier Cru 2017 / 750 ml.

Item#: 54616

VN92+92–94 pts. - Vinous - Jan 2019
The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos du Fonteny 1er Cru, which contains 40% whole bunch fruit, has a very detailed bouquet of crushed-stone-infused, minerally fruit; hints of incense and lavender emerge with time in the glass. The palate is fresh and vibrant right from the start, offering candied tart red fruit mixed with orange zest and citrus peel, wonderful definition and such vivacity on the finish that you will beg for another sip straight away. Might this surpass the Clos Saint-Jacques this year?

Where It's From

Country / France

View more wines from France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.

The 2017 Morey-Saint-Denis Clos des Ormes 1er Cru has a pure, quite generous, almost Chambolle-like bouquet of ample red cherries, raspberry coulis and subtle vanilla aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit and a fine bead of acidity. Quite “correct” and linear, yet with admirable precision toward the finish. This is a finely crafted Morey Premier Cru from Jadot.
RP90+90–92 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Jan 2019
The 2017 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru Clos des Ormes (Maison Louis Jadot) was showing very well, bursting with aromas of sweet berry fruit, candied peel, baking chocolate and warm spices. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, satiny and lavish, with juicy acids, fine but chalky structuring tannins and a long finish.

As usual, the 2017 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Les Vaucrains is the most structured, tight-knit wine in the Chevillon cellar, unwinding in the glass with aromas of cassis, dark chocolate and rich soil, framed by smoky new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, richly tannic and concentrated, with imposingly broad shouldered structure and a deep, reserved core. Again, patience will be required and rewarded.
VN93+93–95 pts. - Vinous - Jan 2019
The 2017 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Vaucrains 1er Cru has a little more precision than the Les Saint-Georges on the nose: the terroir more articulated, greater energy conveyed by the aromatics. The pure, precise palate is beautifully balanced with filigreed tannin and an effervescent and very sustained finish that is pure class. This could well be the standout from Chevillon this year. A wine from the top drawer.

The 2017 Côtes de Nuits Villages, comes from a parcel next to Les Evocelles, is bridled with a fine, classically styled bouquet with sous-bois infused red berry fruit mixed with a hint of tobacco. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin, silky smooth in style, very well judged acidity and the new oak is seamlessly integrated on the sensual finish. I bet a lot of people will overlook this modest cru within Roty’s range of 2017s. My advice is: don’t.

The 2017 Côtes de Nuits Villages has an elegant, refined bouquet of red cherries and crushed strawberry aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and a fine bead of acidity. Very natural and poised. I prefer this to the 2018.

A beam of pure cherry marks this elegant red, with violet, black pepper and iron accents. Taut and toned, with a lingering echo of cherry on the long aftertaste. Best from 2021 through 2036. 650 cases made, 400 cases imported. (Bruce Sanderson)
