($110) Red-ruby. Dark berries, mint and underbrush on the nose. Powerful and expansive, with sappy flavors of red cherry, strawberry, minerals and spices. Compellingly sweet and extract-rich. Spreads out impressively on the finish, with the ripe tannins covered by fleshy fruit. A very impressive 2001.

About This Producer


Michael Magnien wines offer the Burgundy enthusiast a great opportunity to experience the refined extraction and elegant concentration of Pinot Noir. Michel comes from a long line of Burgundy artisans and owns 27 acres of grand cru, premier cru and village vineyards. He sold off the majority of his crop until 1992, when he started bottling most of the harvest. In 1994, at the urging of his son Frederic, he decided to bottle the whole harvest and thus it remains to this day. He is a leader in terroir-driven Pinot and deals in purity. His wines are sleek yet commanding, and flood the senses with waves of berry and cherry in a sea of perfumed and exotic spices.
