Domaine Michel Magnien Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru 2019
"Domaine Michel Magnien has evolved into a Burgundy producer of a singular style and philosophy from cellars located in the village of Morey-Saint-Denis. In 1993, Frédéric Magnien persuaded his father Michel to begin domaine bottling. The domaine is now certified biodynamic by Demeter and the wines are produced without the use of new oak.
The domaine’s 45 acres are spread across the villages of Morey-Saint-Denis, Gevrey-Chambertin, Chambolle-Musigny, and Vosne Romanée, with holdings in several premier cru and grand cru vineyards. These include the grand crus Clos de la Roche, Clos Saint-Denis, and Charmes-Chambertin. Frédéric Magnien maintains an average vine age of 50 years
Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru sits below Chambertin and includes the climat of Mazoyères-Chambertin Grand Cru within its borders, a section of which reaches down to the D974. Magnien’s parcel is in Mazoyères, which can be bottled as Charmes. The name charmes likely derives from champs, and means field or meadow. Its gentle slope of decayed limestone has an abundance of gravel and stones, allowing the vines to grow deep."
