  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

    Bright, deep red-ruby. Sappy blackberry and smoked meat on the nose. Tightly wound and more serious than the Millandes, with very good intensity to the dark fruit and spice flavors. Finishes with firm tannic structure and very good persistence. These 2004s were bottled in January of 2006. (A second bottle showed less flesh and some spearmint and peppery nuances, but its juiciness and sweet tannins merited 88 points.)

    While this too is distinctly riper than the bulk of the range, it's not quite as ripe as the Millandes, displaying more classic red pinot fruit aromas and round, soft, forward and very supple flavors that coat the mouth and deliver good persistence. This is really sweet and sufficiently accessible that it should drink well several years before the Millandes or Charmes.

    Nicely pitched between mineral and fruit, iron and currants. The heft surprised for me a 2004, but it's not ungainly. Ready to go.

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.
