What is Passetoutgrain?
This is the Burgundy appellation for reds that are a blend of Pinot Noir and Gamay (the name loosely means 'throw it all in'). By law the wine is composed of at least one-third Pinot Noir and no more than two-thirds Gamay They are usually fragrant, crisp, light fruity reds with red and blackcurrant, dark cherry and pomegranate fruit, crunchy acidity that makes for a fine balance and a really easy-drinking, delicious food wine. However, as land and fruit prices soar, Gamay is rapidly shrinking and output from the appellation has more than halved in the last decade.
Don't miss a look-in at such value while it lasts!
 
The Fontaine family have always taken pride in their wine, and this one is from a plot - in the east of Chassagne-Montrachet commune - co-planted with both varieties 50/50 in 1974. The now mature 0.54ha plot is picked and the grapes are co-fermented (a field-blend) and then treated just like the other reds of the Domaine except for ageing only in older oak for 18 months.
The Gamay provides a little spice and slightly gamey/pepper steak aromas but there is no shortage of berry fruit in this red. Nothing is added, no yeast, no sugar, no additions of any kind. It’s pure, flavoursome with a thirst-inducing, food craving kind of fresh acidity aligned with the fruit.
And cheap! Wow, this is a beauty for the price.

This 50/50 blend of pinot noir and gamay from Céline Fontaine comes from a single parcel that runs along the border of Chassagne-Montrachet. The wine is lithe and floral with wild strawberry fruit that recalls Burgundy rather than Beaujolais. Punch, 19 April 2017.
