Henri Magnien Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes
One of the more recent additions to our Burgundy portfolio, and we are very excited to be working with Charles as he pushes forward into the front rank of Gevrey Chambertin growers.
One of the more recent additions to our Burgundy portfolio, and we are very excited to be working with Charles as he pushes forward into the front rank of Gevrey Chambertin growers. Introduced through his good friend Pierre Duroché, Magnien’s style of wines is nearer to Dugat-Py, in terms of richness, power and density. The domaine owns some prime sites in the north west quadrant of Gevrey, an area known locally as the Cotes St Jacques, including holdings in Lavaut and Estournelles and also a great strip running the length of Cazetiers, known as the “Le Petit Chambertin” because it has the same combination of soil types. Charles is also very particular about oak – choosing his own wood, exclusively now from the forests of Fontainbleu and Chatillons, and giving to his preferred tonneliere Chauvin. He finds the different forests favour different cuvées and that it is not so much the percentage of new oak but rather the type of wood and level of toast that is most important.
"The 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin has retained a wonderful bouquet with red cherries, cranberry and wild strawberry fruit that feels cohesive and concentrated. The new oak is nicely integrated. The palate is smooth in texture with slightly lower acidity than expected. Very harmonious and seductive, this fans out nicely on the peppery finish." 90 pts, Neal Martin, Vinous
