2014 Frederic Magnien Bourgogne Graviers
A terrific, workmanlike Burgundy. Reliable, delicious and affordable (for a Burgundy).
VINEYARDS: Sourced from south-facing vineyard plots near Chambolle-Musigny, rich in clay with gravelly sub-soils (in French, graviers). Such terroir drains well in wetter years, yet also because of the clay, retains water in dryer years: an ideal balance for healthy vines.
AGE OF VINES: 40+ years
WINEMAKING: Hand-harvested. Fermented on indigenous yeasts in temperature-controlled tanks. Aged in older French oak barrels. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
TASTING IMPRESSIONS: Aromas of black cherries, raspberries and earth. Bright, fresh and juicy; flavors of raspberries and baking spices.
APPELLATION: Bourgogne AOC
BLEND: 100% Pinot Noir
