"8 plots from well-known vineyards from 40 to 100 years old. Brilliant purple colour. Still ripe of course but it is much more the depth and concentration of the wine which is obvious even on the nose. Fills the mouth with more in reserve than the regular Gevrey, fine tannins in evidence, just enough acidity and very persistent. Lovely finish, with raspberry and strawberry notes together."

The Magnien family is one of the oldest wine making families in Burgundy and in particular in Côte de Nuits thanks to the Domaine Henri Magnien, a family estate that took root in Gevrey Chambertin in the 1600s. No less than twelve generations have taken advantage of a magnificent plot made largely of old vines on Gevrey-Chambertin and Corton.
The estate as it exists today was set up by Henri Magnien in 1987, and presently operated by Charles Magnien. The vineyard covers 6 hectares of old vines (massal selection of the family). The culture and the vinification are rather traditional. Charles invested in the cellar to further increase the quality of the wines opening a new winery in 2018. The wines have a lot of charm, suppleness and elegance, with a classic use of the new barrel and a moderate extraction.
