“The 2015 Chassagne-Montrachet VV Delivers fabulous power and depth. Straw-colored, aromas of toasted hazelnut, stone fruit and lemon oil rise from the glass. Full in mouthfeel, rich flavors of white peach, Meyer lemon, and ripe pears are carried carried to a climactic finish that is focused and precise. This is a superb bottle of wine right now that will continue to impress for another 5-7 years in the cellar.” - California Wine Advisors

TheDomaine Fontaine Gagnard Cassagne Montrachet VV 2015 is a monumentally deliciously rich-style Burgundy (dare I describe a French wine as full-throttle?) from 50- to 70-year-old vines and is a veritable steal for $75. Fontaine-Gagnard is one of the most respected names in Chassagne-Montrachet, and collectors who treasure an all-too-rare value from Burgundy need look no further than this. Only 10 cases are available, so secure yours today. Hal Oates, Andrew Harper’s Wine Concierge
