Domaine Henri Magnien Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru 'les Cazetiers'
Charles Magnien is one of the most exciting of the next generation growers in the Cote de Nuits, having taken over from his father in 2009 and rung in considerable changes, which now really make the most of the family’s enviable 6 hectares of vineyards. The Domaine was recommended by Charles’ friend Pierre Duroché, partly to divert our insatiable demand for his own 1er and Grand Cru wines from Gevrey Chambertin, and there is definitely a fair comparison to be made: Charles’ wines have a similar energy, purity and focus, as well as showing intensity rather than density, and both have commendably restrained levels of alcohol and new oak, although perhaps Magnien shows a touch more generous tannins. This is definitely a domaine to watch – as noted by Neal Martin first at BurgFest 2015. The Wine Advocate’s William Kelley notes “this is an exciting emerging domaine with which consumers are warmly advised to acquaint themselves”.
"Cazetiers is effectively Charles Magnien’s home vineyard and he knows it intimately. Since he has a whole hectare and a half, I am delighted that he makes great wine here from vines that average 65 years old. Beautifully ripe yet with a joyous balance, this absolutely fills the mouth while resolutely insisting on its mineral aftertaste."
5 Star Wine! 94-96/100, Jasper Morris MW
The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers 1er Cru comes from 1.47 hectares that cover the four soil types within the vineyard; Magnien informed me that he is the only grower who has all four. The vines are Pinot Magnien and some are up to 100 years old. A gorgeous bouquet of pure black cherries, blueberry and light violet aromas bursts from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and a fine bead of acidity, and lightly spiced, leading into a harmonious, persistent, mineral-driven finish. This should evolve into a gorgeous Les Cazetiers. 93-95/100, Neal Martin, Vinous
