Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Fonteny, which sees around 60% new wood, is robed in a deep ruby color. The new oak is dominating the aromatics at present, which makes it difficult discerning the fruit or the terroir. The palate is medium-bodied with good extraction on the entry. This has an attractive supple texture, quite spicy at first then segueing into a lovely fig-tinged finish. That new oak is a little oppressive but I suspect it will meld into the fabric of this wine with 5-6 years bottle age.
