Domaine Michel Magnien - 2014/15
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.
