Henri Magnien 2016 – Vieilles Vignes – Gevrey- Chambertin

The nose is aromatic, slightly tight and offers power as well as finesse. It reveals notes of cassis, wild black berries and slight notes of plum, fleshy raspberry combined with a hint of rose as well as a slight touches of Zan, cardamom, nutmeg and very discreet touches of vanilla (background). The palate is fruity, juicy, well-balanced and offers a nice juiciness, suavity, a beautiful finesse, a slight mineral frame, good structure, tension, minerality / freshness as well as a nice precision and definition. On the palate this wine expresses notes of ripe blackberry, plum and fleshy raspberry combined with hints of black cherry, rose, chocolate / cocoa as well as slight touches of Bourbon vanilla and cardamom. Tannins are well-built. Good length.
