This is exceptionally fresh and bright, particularly for a classic Cazetiers with an intense and densely fruited earth-infused nose that complements the robust but pure and equally intense full-bodied flavors brimming with both extract and a fine minerality plus plenty of the typical Gevrey muscle on the wonderfully long finish supported by buried but still very firm tannins. This is a complex effort and very Cazetiers in character.

Good deep red. Distinctly cool, smoky aromas of redcurrant, licorice and menthol. Sweet but tightly wrapped, with cool flavors of black fruits and minerals. This fruit was picked with 13.3% potential alcohol, but has a lower pH than Magnien's negociant version, which comes from vines next to Clos Saint-Jacques. Firm tannins and acids give this a solid structure for aging.

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.
