Tracing its roots to the esteemed Gagnard-Delagrange vineyard holdings, Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard was founded in 1985 and has quickly become one of the top producers in Chassagne-Montrachet. Despite being relatively youthful by Burgundian standards, Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard has rapidly become one of Chassagne-Montrachet’s most indispensable and important producers. Boasting over 12 hectares of vineyard holdings in three Grand Crus and twelve Premier Crus, including such mythic parcels as Le Montrachet, Batard-Montrachet, Les Caillerets and La Romanee, the domaine is renowned for producing wines that are always among the finest and most authentic expressions of their respective terroirs. Proprietor Celine Fontaine uses traditional Burgundian winemaking methods to craft intense and complex yet classically-balanced wines that have become critical and commercial darlings.
