Domaine Michel Magnien

Awarded appellation: Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru « Climats d'Or » 2017 certifié AB

Award: Gold Medal

 

Description of the appellation

First mentioned as far back as 1120, fourteenth century Morey was a place of asylum for Cistercian monks who appeared to have possessed numerous vineyards and even a winery by 1306. The appellation extends from Chambolle-Musigny to Gevrey-Chambertin and covers around 148 hectares, 80% of which are planted with grapes for red wines.  

The Climats d'Or reveal the deep and delicate essence of Morey-Saint-Denis.

Like a musician choosing his notes Frédéric Magnien selects grapes from four different plots to express the symphony of Morey-Saint-Denis, a village who deserves to be known.

The "Cheseaux" give their elegance, the "Clos Baulet" bring the delicacy, the intensity is stressed by the "Charrieres" and the minerality is transcended by the "Monts Luisants".

 

Geological profile

Lying on the vein of Bajoc limestone which crosses the village, these plots of remarkable character are decorated with bright golden color thanks to their bright yellow leaves after the harvest.
