75cl * 13% ABV * Burgundy, France
Frederic Magnien has experience working for two of Burgundy's most quietly accomplished domaines: Jean-Joel Gagnard and Michel Magnien (his father), as well has having spent time in the USA and Australia. Whilst his wines certainly have the character of their appeallations, they are not insular in their view of the world. Located on the border of Chambolle-Musigny, 'Les Ruchots' vineyard is at the bottom of a valley. Silky and fleshy red Burgundy, with plenty of ripe red cherry fruit. Soft and textured with powerful tannins.
