« The Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru Les Fontenys smells like gum at the opening. Behind, the fruit looks like a black fruit coulis. Its finesse on the palate shows well the identity of its terroir with a very good smoothness and a delicate and fine mouthful. There is a lot of grace and elegance in this wine. » (Le Guide des Meilleurs Vins de France 2017 - RVF)

Guide Bettane & Desseauve des Vins de France

Wine rated (guide 2017) : 16/20 (Très bon vin)
Vineyard rated (guide 2020) : 4****Stars (The producers of very high-quality wines, those who are the glory of the French vineyard)

About this wine : Jus fin et salin, assez aisé à boire, racé et salin, gourmand. Goûté en élevage, il faudra le revoir après mise.

About the vineyard : Bernard Bouvier is part of the younger generation of wine growers from Marsannay that, for the first time, successfully highlight the rich heritage of this cru. The wines are vinified in a modern way but respecting the terroirs, in an opulent and very consensual style. If you add the kindness of the reception and the dynamism of the marketing, it should be that this young producer gives a very favourable image of the Burgundy of today. Its latest vintages show an evolution of style towards greater finesse like a few others in his village, and this movement should, most likely, inspire some others.

About this wine : Le gevrey-chambertin premier cru Les Fontenys sent le caoutchouc à l'ouverture. Derrière, le fruit prend une allure de coulis de fruit noir. Sa finesse de bouche retranscrit bien l'identité de son terroir avec un très beau délié et un joli grain délicat. Il y a beaucoup de grâce et d'élégance dans ce vin.
