Charmes Chambertin - Cote De Nuits - Burgundy - France

Professional Wine Reviews for Domaine Michel Magnien Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2016

Rated 93 by Vinous Media
Moderately saturated medium red. Doesn't show quite the lift of the Goulots or Cazetiers on the nose, offering deeper-pitched aromas of red fruits, earth and licorice. Then surprisingly sappy in the mouth, with its red fruit flavors complicated by exotic spices and lifted by a floral element. This wine struck me as a bit less primary than the Cazetiers and Goulots but it's lively nevertheless. A dry, classic style, from vines planted in the 1950s.

Winery Domaine Michel Magnien

Region: Burgundy

The region of Burgundy has become synonymous with high quality red wines, but in actual fact the region consistently produces a wide variety of fine wines of many different styles, rigorously protected by French wine laws designed to keep reputations and quality at a very high level. The region benefits greatly from a warm and sunny summer climate, which, coupled with the excellent quality soils which typify the region, and centuries of experience and expertise, has led to the region being known all over the world for the excellence of its produce. The majority of grapevines grown here are of the Pinot Noir varietal, which has helped Burgundy become known as the definitive region for elegant and smooth red wines, but Chardonnay grapes and many others are also grown in abundance and used to make both still and sparkling wines.

Country: France

French winemakers are subjected to several laws and regulations regarding the wines they produce, and how they can be labeled and sold. Such procedures are designed to increase the overall quality of the country's produce, and also to ensure that wines made in each particular region or appellation are of a character and type which is representative of the area. Thankfully for consumers of wine world-wide, the French have a particularly high reputation to uphold, and seem to do so flawlessly. Every year, wineries from all over France produce millions upon millions of bottles of fine wine, making the most of their native grape varieties and the excellent terrain which covers most of the country. From the expensive and exquisite red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, to the white wines and cremants of central France, the French are dedicated to providing the world with wines of the highest quality and most distinctive character.
