Good medium red. Initially reduced aromas of musky coffee and oak turned to raspberry and spices with air. Savory and quite backward on the palate, with moderate flesh and strong mineral character to the black raspberry flavor. Became much more silky as it opened in the glass, but the firm, juicy, persistent finish shows a medicinal character that calls for at least a few years of aging. This should evolve gracefully.

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.
