Frederic Magnien Vieille Vignes Nuits St. Georges 2005

Posted by

Magnien is a quality producer with a huge range of wines. This had a very roasted nose, with strong aromas of Hazlenut. The palate had a really nice texture, with very fine grained tannins. The cranberry tartness had a fantastic purity and a touch of spicyness. The medium length finish rounded out this perfect early drinking ’05 pinot with depth and complexity. Elegant to the T – 2005 is a great year for France indeed.

Excellent
