2017 Frederic Magnien Bourgogne Rouge Graviers
"Les Graviers" is a climat of Chambolle-Musigny. The vine on this plot is planted from North to South. The roots are deep on clay soil with gravel in the subsoil, which ensure good water retention and supports better hot and heavy summer time. Les Graviers vines are approximately 30 years old.
Wine & Spirits, 91 Points
This fruit comes from a single parcel east of the RN74 in Chambolle-Musigny, where Magnien works with a grower farming 40-year-old vines in clay soils over gravel. He destems the grapes, allows a spontaneous fermentation while controlling the temperature, then ages the wine in older barrels, presenting the kind of depth and richness that could stand in for a Villages wine. The flavors are bold and ripe, almost chunky in their cherry intensity, with tart raspberry and apple-like acidity to brighten the finish. Crazy-good Bourgogne rouge.
