Domaine Michel Magnien Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru Climats d'Or 2017 75cl
Domaine Michel Magnien Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru Climats d'Or, Burgundy, France
Frederic Magnien is the fifth generation to run the 19 hectare family estate based in Morey Saint Denis. His father, Michel, started with 4 hectares in 1967 gaining an international reputation for his full-bodied, concentrated reds. Frederic joined in 1993 and has gradually tempered the style, reducing the amount of new oak and producing wines with more aroma, fruit and elegance without losing the trademark Magnien depth and richness.
More recently, Frederic has started ageing half the wine in terracota amphorae, and half in barrel, showing that he is not afraid to break the mould in the area. He is also certified Biodynamic.
Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru Climats d'Or is the perfect marriage between the structure of a Gevrey-Chambertin, and the perfume of a Chambolle-Musigny. The nose is bursting with red berry fruit, but also displays violet, spice and earthy notes as the wine opens up in the glass. There is a lovely richness on the palate, with supple tannins.
A great match for game, duck breast, or mushroom dishes.
