Domaine Frédéric Magnien, Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits Genevrières 2005

Magnien Bourgogne 2005 #1

Magnien Bourgogne 2005 #2

Immature ruby red color.  Plump nose.  Some barrel notes.  Firm, fresh and balanced on the palate, a good tension informed by ripe tannin and kitten teeth ’05 acidity: red raspberry, bing cherry.  Some density through the mid-palate and a touch of spice.  Nicely done.  Modern styled, new wave Bourgogne.  Barb says, “regardless of level, if you made a poor red burg in ’05 you should find another line of work.”  Indeed.  Now – 2015+.
