Domaine Henri Magnien is the only owner with plots in both sectors of this Grand Cru, Ruchottes du Dessus (white oolite subsoil), and Ruchottes du Bas (Prémeaux limestone). This surely contributes to the extraordinary richness, complexity, harmony and finesse of this wine. The average age of the vines – 45-50 years – no doubt also plays its significant part. Only three barrels were made in 2019, of which two were new, and one had contained a previous vintage. 25% whole bunches were retained. Colour is medium-deep, ruby purple, aromas recall fresh black fruits, and kirsch. Palate is spectacularly elegant, with silky texture, substantial fruit, soft tannins and great length. Our allocation is limited (as is also true with the other wines). Please let us know your wishes quickly, so we may do our best to share bottles as fairly as possible (for drinking 2023-2040+).
