Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard 2018 Chassagne-Montrachet, Burgundy
A breath taking Chardonnay from Chassagne-Montrachet. Deep aromas of supple, ripe pears in fall spiced poaching liquid, warmed cashews, orange blossom and just a hint of sweet cream. Expansive on the palate and the wine continues to evolve and unfold in the glass. The finish here is quite long making it lovely to just sip away on while exploring the layers but there is enough muscle for rich seafood like crab, lobster, scallops and, as always, brilliant with simple roasted chicken.
