Henri Magnien - Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes 2019


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 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin Village comes from seven parcels of vines between six and 40 years old. Matured with 15% whole bunch, it has a perfumed bouquet of vibrant red fruit infused with touches of crushed violet. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly chewy tannins and lightly spiced, leading to a tangy, curry-leaf-tinged finish. A fine Gevrey that should present a decade of drinking pleasure.' - Vinous

An amazing effort from Charles Magnien. This old vines village wine is an overachiever and so delicious, loaded with red fruits and nice structure. Long and spicy finish. Don't miss out on this one - Vinonueva
