Henri Magnien - Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru 'Les Cazetiers' 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.
'The 2020 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers is brilliant, bursting from the glass with aromas of raspberries, plums, exotic spices and forest floor. Medium to full-bodied, seamless and multidimensional, it's velvety and layered, with lively acids, beautifully ripe tannins and a long, resonant finish. This is a benchmark Cazetiers from the only proprietor to own holdings that stretch from the top to the bottom of the slope.' - 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
'Now we come to the flagship wine. A beautiful glowing purple. This wine suggests a huge amount to follow, just waiting on the detail. The palate is magical however, not so much in the fruit descriptors but in the sense of class, the suavity, the balance and the persistence. No sign of heat, tannins perfectly integrated. Real muscle here for the longer haul. Beautiful. 13.6% alcohol' - 94-97 points Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy
