A mildly toasty nose speaks of poached plum, game, underbrush and plenty of sauvage character. The delicious, intense and well-detailed flavors flash even more minerality on the sappy, austere and balanced finish.
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 François, 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 (70 to 100 years old) which is called Pinot Noir Magnien 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.
