An elegant, pure and beautifully layered nose reflects notes of dark cherry, raspberry and violets. The mouthfeel of the medium weight flavors is at once refined but muscular with both good delineation and a subtle minerality adding interest to the complex and lingering finish that exhibits hints of chocolate and warmth. This is lovely and again, a wine that should amply reward mid-term keeping.
Domaine Michel Magnien has evolved into a Burgundy producer of a singular style and philosophy from their cellars located in the village of Morey-Saint-Denis. Michel Magnien was born in 1946 and worked alongside his father Bernard from a young age. The Magniens sold their grapes to the local cooperative until 1993 when his son Frédéric joined the family business and persuaded his father to bottle the entire harvest by themselves. Frédéric Magnien began experimenting with organic practices in the late 1990s and the entire production was certified biodynamic by Demeter in 2015. Frédéric has also evolved the style of the wines and today élevage takes place in only used oak and clay jars.
