Fontaine-Gagnard Volnay Clos des Chênes 1999

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

The medium to dark ruby-colored 1999 Volnay Clos des Chenes has a nose of sweet black fruits and toasted oak. Medium-bodied and silky-textured, it offers a roasted, smoky, toasty personality of blackberries, black raspberries, and cherries. Its finish is long, pure, and firm. Drink it between 2003 and 2008.

This white Burgundy has citrus flavors that carry mineral and earthy characteristics. Complex and different, this wine will intrigue you from first sniff to last sip.

Complex and different. A real white Burgundy here, with some mineral, citrus and earthy character that will hold your attention, from first sniff to last sip. Medium- to full-bodied, there are plenty of spark here. Drink now through 2006.

Fantastic '99 Volnay, showing ripeness and impressive balance. Medium- to full-bodied, this is the sort of wine that makes you say, "It's all there." Plenty of clean, focused fruit and lots of intensity. A lovely wine. Drink now through 2008.

Elegantly closed nose of herbal hints, smoke and deep red berry fruits. Velvety soft on the palate, this "premier cru" shines its Burgundian heritage on its depth of flavor and unmistakable layered finish. This has 8-10 years of cellar time ahead if you can resist its temptations right now!

The mineral, pear, and apple-scented 1999 Chassagne-Montrachet Les Vergers is tightly wound, medium-bodied, and silky-textured. It has excellent depth to its liquid mineral, lemon, earth, and apple-flavored core. This fresh, flavorful wine will be at its best if consumed by 2007.
