This and its 1er Cru partner were the 2011 Gevrey-Chambertin examples, and they were both very good. Many thanks to Becca for giving me access to M. Magnien’s wines! Comparatively, this had less density and mineral complexity, but was still very good. Light-medium weight ruby-purple. Overt, perfumed nose, with characteristic earthy spice. Toasty, cedar oak hints. Blueberry fruit, with slightly minty herbal aromatics. Sweet-ish cranberry and red cherry fruit. Earthy spice and some perfume on the finish. Light-medium body. Moderate, fine-grained tannins.
