Gevrey Chambertin Aux Echezeaux
Lying 15km South of Dijon the famous commune of Gevrey Chambertin sits. Classic Gevrey Chambertin is typically deeper in colour, firmer in body and more tannic in structure than most red Burgundy. The best can develop into the richest, most complete and long-lived Pinot Noir in the world. This is largely thanks to the iron-rich clay soils. Frederic Magnien's Aux Echezeaux has a broad rich palate, meaty with black fruit flavours. Consistently over the years Frederic has reduced both the amount of time the wine spends in oak and the percentage and in doing so allowing the fruit to sing. Bottled without fining or filtration.
Domaine Michel Magnien
Born in 1946, Michel Magnien is the fourth generation of winemakers from the Magnien family. From a tender age, he worked in the 4 hectares of vineyards belonging to his father, Bernard Magnien (thrid generation). From 1967 to 1991, Michel Magnien and his wife, Dominique acquired numerous plots of vines that they dedicated themselves to cultivating, tending, harvesting and making wine from.
