Domaine Michel Magnien has evolved into a Burgundy producer of a singular style and philosophy from their cellars located in the village of Morey-Saint-Denis. Michel Magnien was born in 1946 and worked alongside his father Bernard from a young age. The Magniens sold their grapes to the local cooperative until 1993 when his son Frédéric joined the family business and persuaded his father to bottle the entire harvest by themselves. Frédéric Magnien began experimenting with organic practices in the late 1990s and the entire production was certified biodynamic by Demeter in 2015. Frédéric has also evolved the style of the wines and today élevage takes place in used oak and clay jars.
The domaine’s 45 acres are spread across the villages of Morey-Saint-Denis, Gevrey-Chambertin, Chambolle-Musigny, and Vosne Romanée, with holdings in several premier cru and grand cru vineyards. These include the grand crus Clos de la Roche, Clos Saint-Denis, and Charmes-Chambertin. Frédéric Magnien maintains an average vine age of 50 years
Gevrey-Chambertin Les Seuvrées is a lieu-dit lying below the D974 directly below the grand cru of Charmes-Chambertin. Seuvrées comes from the Latin “separatas” and was named because the plot is separated by the borders of Gevrey and Morey. It is from clay-limestone soils with round stones of varying sizes.
Les Seuvrées delivers classic Gevrey-Chambertin flavors of black fruit, licorice, violets, and spices with an underlying earthiness. Fifty-year-old vines bring unexpected richness and depth to this village-level bottling. The wine is a pure expression of its terroir thanks to its élevage in a combination of used oak and clay jars.
2015 is a 97pt WA rated vintage in the Cotes de Nuits.
Tightly packed, this red delivers a beam of cherry, surrounded by earth, tobacco and mineral elements. Shows purity and rusticity, creating a dialogue that lingers through the finish. Best from 2022 through 2038. 410 cases made. ~92WS
