Chambertin-Clos de Bèze: Frédéric Magnien Grand Cru 2017
We are very lucky to have secured a small allocation of this Chambertin-Close de Bèze, one of the greatest of all the grand cru vineyards.
This a brooding wine of obvious class built for the long term but with immediate gratification offered through an intense spectrum of flavours including cassis, liquorish, toasted nuts and crushed stone.

Frédéric Magnien is based in his family domaine in Morey-Saint-Denis in the Côte de Nuits and has been developing his reputation as one of the sharpest and most meticulous winemakers in the Côte d'Or. Frédéric sources grapes from a selection of superb vineyards in Morey', Chambolle' and Gevrey' with a strong commitment to biodynamics and a 'hands-off' approach to vinification. From 2015 onwards, he has aged a number of his wines in terracotta 'jarres' in order to emphasise terroir and purity, used only indigenous yeast for fermentation and cut down his use of oak.
