2012 Charmes Chambertin Michel Magnien

Size Availability? price? Qty

Average critic rating : 87.0 points



The 2012 Charmes Chambertin has a light bouquet with scents of strawberry and cranberry, strong earthy and almost leathery scents emerging in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe tannins, compact dark berry fruit and a rather abrupt finish that needs more flesh and plushness in keeping with Charmes-Chambertin style. It feels a little gawky at the moment so I would afford it another couple of years. eRobertParker.com.June, 2015

Before Michel Magnien joined the family business in 1946, his father Bernard owned 4 hectares of vines but sold the grapes to the local cooperative. Michel added new vineyards and begun bringing winemaking in-house, but it was only when Bernard’s grandson Frederic arrived that the whole crop was bottled at the domaine.Domaine Michel Magnien now owns 5 hectares of vines with 3 grand crus (Charmes Chambertin, Clos de la Roche and Clos St Denis). The wines are aged in barrel (80% new oak for grand crus, 60% for 1er crus and 30% for the village wines).
