Morey St Denis 1er Cru Les Blanchards
The single vineyard "Les Blanchards" lies at the heart of the Morey Saint Denis appellation and where Domain Michel Magnien is situated. The temperate climate moulds this pure and elegant Pinot Noir and the estate has made a conscious effort to minimise the amount of wood influence in the wine and where possible use alternatives such as amphora. Bright red cherried aromas, fresh strawberry and cranberry flavoured palate with the length of flavour that delivers after 19 months ageing in their underground cellars.
