Description

A rarity in Burgundy, this comes from 100+ year old vines, a plot planted on its own roots in 1902/03 and surviving the ravages of Phylloxera to this day. There are even several trunks of gamay and pinot gris. A superb village wine that encompasses everything we hope for in Chambolle - pure perfume. The vinification is very simple, a cold soak at 10-12°C followed by ageing in mostly old oak barrels. A great buy. Stephane Magnien took over his family’s very small, 4.5 hectare domaine in 2009, and is making some truly beautiful wines – a rising star on the Cote de Nuits. Most parcels are in Morey-Saint-Denis with a couple of parcels in Chambolle-Musigny.

The wines from Morey-Saint-Denis evoke thoughts of the earth and forest, drawing you into a space redolent of minerals, wood smoke and forest berry fruits. They can be restrained in youth but age magnificently. Chambolle-Musigny is often easily recognised for its illustrious and heady perfume, and silky red fruits. Chambolle is arguably the most charming village on the entire Cote d’Or.
