Michel Gros HCDN Fontaine-Saint-Martin blanc 2016


The soil here is the same mix of marl, clay, and limestone found on the Hill of Corton, and while the Fontaine-St-Martin won’t compete on richness or longevity, its smooth floral quality readily calls to mind the famous Grand Cru.

The 2016 whites are a delight — a lovely combination of ripe richness with a lively refreshing core. Gros’s cuvée is no exception: open, approachable, and simply delicious today. Burghound found it “round, delicious, and attractively vibrant,” and balanced by a “fine bead of minerality.” The nose is floral, showing gardenia, white pepper, pears, toasted lemon. The mouth is intense and smooth, at once mouthfilling and fresh.
