2013 1er Cru Fonteny Domaine Huguenot
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
Powerful and massive wine from clayey soil next to grand cru Ruchottes. There is dark colour, and rich tannin as well as fruit - a bit of a brute but no shortage of character, and the fruit is very much equal to the structure, it just needs time to harmonise. Drinking range: 2020 - 2027 L&S (Nov 2014)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or buy 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified (as a full pack) to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Bright light crimson. A real hit of bumptious fruit on the front palate. Drinking range: 2020 - 2027 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2015)
The Huguenots can trace their history in Marsannay and working in the vines back to 1789. Currently the domaine is run by Philippe. His father Jean-Louis expanded the domaine from five to twenty-two hectares (twelve in Marsannay, six in Fixin, and four in Gevrey) before handing over the reins. Philippe has taken the bold step of taking all twenty-two hectares into organic production (the conversion was completed in 2010).
