Bright ruby-red. Ripe dark fruit and bitter chocolate aromas. Supple and sappy, with very good winey depth to its dark fruit and mineral flavors. The persistent finish features fine, palate-coating tannins. Quite primary.

Ageing nicely. Dark fruit and surprises with the ripeness. Good tannin presence. Will sit and get even better with age.

Tasted twice in last week (at home and at Robuchon in Manhattan). Both times the wine has performed admirably. Plenty of power allayed with some Burgundian game (not too much) and smoky fruit. Excellent length. Really a stunning wine for a villages AOC

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.
