2007 Roty Joseph, Gevrey-Chambertin Les FontenysApr. 2010
The first wine with a floral dimension to the aromas. Again this is quite structured, but not enough to overwhelm the rest of the wine. Super mid-palate intensity.
1998 Roty Joseph, Gevrey-Chambertin Les FontenysMar. 2006
A bright medium colour, somewhere between cherry and ruby-red. To start, the nose is an absorbing and deep mix of faint mushroom, absorbed creamy oak and a sweet, almost impenetrably deep, musky fruit. Good acidity, if perhaps a tad tart, and a real kick of intensity in the mid-palate onwards. No rough or astringent tannins here, just a very above average finish.
