94 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "The 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Fontenys wafts from the glass with aromas of sweet berry fruit, plums, peonies, warm spices, orange rind and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, layered and seamless, it's sensual and concentrated, with lively acids and a long, resonant finish. This has turned out especially well. Drink: 2029-2055. (Jan 2022)"

94 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The very old vine Fontenys is very, very elegant in profile in 2019. The bouquet is deep, young and complex, wafting from the glass in a mix of sweet dark berries, cassis, smoked meats, a touch of licorice, a classy foundation of black minerality, woodsmoke, espresso and spicy oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very much defined by its underlying minerality, but with a beautiful core of sappy black fruit, fine-grained tannins and impeccable balance on the long, focused and very, very promising finish. Outstanding juice. (Drink between 2033-2100. (Nov/Dec 2021)"

94 points Jasper Morris, MW (Inside Burgundy): "A solid dense sombre red purple. There is plenty of weight on the palate, dark fruit, quite a lot of oak take up, but really very long. Juicy, rich and exuberant with considerable length. (Dec 2021)"

92-94 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Fontenys 1er Cru was quite closed and reticent on the nose from barrel, touches of cassis and violet petal eventually unfurling, though it remained broody. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, fresh and vibrant. The velvety-textured finish is very caressing. Pure and focused, with a surfeit of energy, this is a superb Premier Cru from Roty. Drink: 2025-2050. (Dec 2020)"
