The 2017 Ruchottes-Chambertin Grand Cru exhibits pretty aromas of berries and petals alongside its generous complement of oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, fleshy but a little firm and compressed by barrel tannin. In the 2018 vintage, Magnien dramatically reduced the amount of new oak for his Ruchottes, and the result was a radical improvement.

Considered by some to be one of the rising stars in Burgundy, Domaine Henri Magnien is a small family estate, standing at about six hectares, in Gevrey-Chambertin. Despite it's relatively you ng age in comparison to other estates, the domaine itself is blessed with plenty of old vines called Pinot Noir Magnien, which are aged between seventy to one-hundred years old. These vines bring a unique power and spiciness to the wines, and the extraction is gentle with a bespoke light toast oak to minimise oak influence.


The domaine has many of the very best vineyards, including Lavaux St-Jacques, Les Cazetiers and Ruchottes-Chambertin. In the past five years, they have converted 70-80% of their vineyards to organic viticulture.

The French Wine region of Burgundy (aka “Bourgogne”) may be small in size, but its influence is huge in the world of vino. The complexity of Burgundy can cast fear into the heart of even a seasoned wine pro, but fear not – the region need only be as complicated as you want it to be. Yes, it is home to some of the most expensive wines in the known universe, but there are also tasty and affordable wines.

Main grapes:

Pinot Noir originated in Burgundy and these vines cover 34% of the region, accounting for 29% of overall wine production. The red grape does extremely well in limestone and clay soil, which helps create their complexity. Pinot Noir wines from Burgundy range in colour from cherry to brick, are light in body, and typically have red fruit and spicy flavours. Gamay is a red grape also grown in Burgundy, but only makes up 10% of the vines.

Chardonnay is the primary grape for white wines in Burgundy, making up 48% of the vines and 68% of production. Chardonnay appreciates Burgundy’s marl soil, which gives it delicate floral, fruit, and mineral aromas and full-bodied flavours. Aligoté is the second white grape, accounting for 6% grown. {Read more about the ancient Aligoté grape in Burgundy.}

The region does produce a sparkling wine called Crémant de Bourgogne. It can be made from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Aligoté, Gamay, Sacy, and Melon. Varieties include blanc, blanc de blancs, blanc de noirs, and rosé.
