An intensely elegant expression of Gevrey Chambertin, carefully crafted by one of Burgundy's most dynamic young winemakers. A wine with a texture like crushed, soft velvet, brimming with sweet red berry fruit, delicate rose petals and a distinctly earthy finish. Instantly delicious, whilst also evolving slowly in your glass to showcase layers of fruit and a tickle of spice. A joy to drink and everything we love about damn good Gevrey.
The Henri Magnien wines are currently made by the dynamic young Charles Magnien, a winemaker pushing boundaries within this classic Domaine. "Charles Magnien took the helm at this enviable six-hectare Domaine in Gevrey-Chambertin in 2009, and his seemingly boundless ambition is already bearing dividends. Friends with the likes of Cyrielle Rousseau, Maxime Cheurlin and Guillaume Rouget, Magnien is part of the Côte de Nuits' dynamic younger generation, but there is substance here as well as style—manifested in a renovated and well-appointed winery and, he tells me, ambitious work in the vines."- William Kelley, robertparker.comThe Henri Magnien wines are also unique in the Pinot Noir clone they work with. Theirs is a particularly old clonal selection, lovingly referred to as 'Pinot Noir Magnien'. Unique to their Domaine, it lends itself to a particularly intense expression of Pinot with a distinctive spicy kick.
