|Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes | Frédéric Magnien
Frédéric Magnien is the 5th generation of winegrowers in his family. With experience abroad and a diploma in oenology, he created his own house as a wine merchant in 1995. The vines he owns are on average over 55 years old and are planted on a soil calcareous and stony with a little clay and since 1996, all the stages of vinification are punctuated by the lunar cycles. The subsoil is rocky, the roots of the old vines will draw deep minerals and essential elements that give this wine its character.
The nose is fruity on blackcurrant and blackberry, but also floral with lovely notes of violet. The mouth is elegant with noble tannins and a nice amplitude on aromas of undergrowth and prunes. Charm and elegance are present, the perfect translation of the terroir of Gevrey-Chambertin
