After Clos de Beze, Fonteny is one of the oldest vineyards in Gevrey. It belonged to the monks attached to the property which is now occupied by Domaine Dugat-Py - L'Aumonerie, the cellars of which date back to the 10c. It is just behind Hotel Les Deux Chevres. There is a pile of stones in the middle of the vines, just out of picture to the right. What it once was, nobody now knows - its identity and history has been lost with the passage of time, but it adds to the mystique of a plot which produces some of the best wine in Gevrey Chambertin. Excellent producers in Fonteny include Bruno Clair and Jane et Sylvain.
