Domaine Henri Magnien Ruchottes-Chambertin 'Grand Cru' 2021


Founded in 1987, Domaine Henri Magnien is a small family estate, with 6 hectares, located in Gevrey-Chambertin. After working side by side with his father Francois, Charles took over the domaine in 2012 and has taken the wines to new heights. He is considered to be one of the rising stars in Burgundy.

They have been using an old clone which is called Pinot Noir Magnien, aged between 70 to 100 years old, bringing unusual power and spiciness to the wines. The domaine has many of the very best vineyards, including Lavaux St-Jacques, Les Cazetiers and Ruchottes-Chambertin. In the past five years, they have converted 70-80% of their vineyards to organic viticulture.

Ruchottes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2021 from Domaine Henri Magnien is a concentrated grand cru, luminous and of incomparable fruit purity. The aromas of wild berries, plums, wild flowers, rose petal, truffle and orange zest mingle with a velvety texture on fine tannins. A marvel of elegance and sensuality concluded with a long and fragrant finish. Class in its purest form for what is certainly the most elegant of the Grands Crus.

"A very spicy and distinctly sauvage and truffle-inflected nose speaks of dark currant, plum and violet. The wonderfully sleek, even polished, middleweight flavors exude a bracing minerality on the almost painfully intense, driving and impressively long finale. This is both stylish and classy and very much built to reward extended cellaring." - Allen Meadows,  Burghound
