Vinous – 93
The 2009 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Fontenys is layered with dark cherries, flowers, spices and menthol. This is an especially fleshy, textured Gevrey. The showy personality of the vintage comes through, but there is also plenty of underlying structure and vibrancy. I especially like the intensity of the finish.
Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029
Robert Parker – 90-92
The 2009 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Fontenys bursts from the glass with an impressive display of fruit. This is a big, structured wine with a solid core of tannins that backs up the fruit. There is plenty of underlying material to allow the Fontenys to age gracefully for a number of years. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029.
