Henri Magnien - Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru 'Lavaux Saint-Jacques' 2020
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.
'Rich purple here, waiting for the bouquet to emerge, plumper and less stern than Estournelles. A huge wealth of fruit, as yet a little monotone, but will develop further from here. There really is a great deal of stuffing here for a long term future.'- 92-95 points Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy
