Chambolle-Musigny 'Vieilles Vignes' - Frederic Magnien - 2015
Burgundy / France
Organic / Biodynamic
Hand harvested from 55yr old vines planted in limestone soils alleviated by gravel and pebbles from various plots including ‘Les Babillères,’ ‘Les Condemennes’ (which borders premier cru ‘Charmes’) and ‘Les Danguerrins’
Fermented in stainless steel tanks with indigenous yeasts
Aged in a mixture of old oak barrels and amphoras
Bottled unfined and unfiltered
A luxurious, deep style from a good vintage. Lots of purple fruit and violet are concentrated from the older vines and combine with the typical vegetal and earthiness that lead into a long, silky finish.
