Michel Magnien Gevrey-Chambertin Seuvrees 2014
This wine possesses a bouquet of very rich, complex scents on the nose. We detect aromas of small, very ripe dark berries, violets, animal notes, spice, and warm earth with a dash of coffee. Soft on the palate, with a finish marked by the quality of the old vines. An excellent village and a real treat for tasters.
Located south of Dijon, the Gevrey-Chambertin appellation is the top village of the Côte de Nuits. In 1847, by royal order of King Louis Philippe, the name Chambertin was attached to Gevrey and officially became Gevrey-Chambertin. Domaine Michel Magnien’s Seuvrées plot is situated south of the village of Gevrey, below the Mazoyères or Charmes Grands Crus plots. The vines are around 60 years old and planted on a soil of clay-limestone containing marl clay mixed with round clods of varying size, and stones.
