Dom Henri Magnien Bourgogne Rouge Moutier 2015 Product #32486 (In Stock)
Dom Henri Magnien Bourgogne Rouge Moutier 2015 Dom Henri Magnien Bourgogne Rouge Moutier 2015

A lovely introduction to Charles Magnien’s winemaking style and the glory of vintage 2015.  The fruit was fully destemmed, fermented in tank, and aged 10 months in 2nd and 3rd  use barrels.  It’s a captivating blend of richness and elegance, with a spicy perfume and generous doses of ripe red raspberry and fresh cherry fruit.  A hint of Gevrey character comes up on the mid-palate and finish, where fine tannins provide support.  Rich without excess weight and directly delicious – as a good Bourgogne should be! – this will make a wonderful 2015 red Burgundy house wine for the next 7 or so years.

Dom Henri Magnien Gevrey 1er Cru Lavaux St.Jacques 2015 Product #32487 (In Stock)
Dom Henri Magnien Gevrey 1er Cru Lavaux St.Jacques 2015 Dom Henri Magnien Gevrey 1er Cru Lavaux St.Jacques 2015

At 9.5 hectares, Lavaux St.Jacques is the largest 1er in Gevrey but divided among 30 or so growers.  Domaine Denis Mortet works a 1.2 hectare slice, but everyone else has much smaller slices and Charles Magnien farms just a fraction of an acre here.  As with the VV, this is all destemmed and lightly extracted but sees about 40% new oak.  We have 13 bottles available.

It’s not noticeably riper than the Gevrey VV but it is substantially more focused, compacted, detailed and intense.  There’s plenty of ripe fruit here, but it’s channeled by bright acidity and a tight band of very fine-grained tannins.  With air, the perfume starts to open up and the tannins are silky enough that it’s fun to taste now.  But this really wants to rest until 2021 and be enjoyed through 2035.  The note from Guide Hachette:  “A very beautiful terroir of the north hillside of the appellation at the origin of a floral and spicy wine, ample, generous but very refined, which leaves a sensation of harmony and elegance.”
