2008 Frederic Magnien 'Les Borniques' Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru

Avg. Rating: 
(0)

The fine Premier Cru "Les Borniques" is adjacent to, and just to the north of, Le Musigny itself. The name refers to "little hollows" or crevices in the land, none of which remain today. We couldn't resist Fred's 2008 wine because it is just so open and ready for business right now, with aromas of old furniture, gingerbread, and spiced cherries, with such length and concentration that it's easy to see why Fred is so attached to this site each year!

Frédéric Magnien is one of Burgundy’s most talented native sons. The fifth generation of a winemaking lineage born in the charming village of Morey-Saint-Denis, he produces a mind-boggling array of wines – as many as 50 separate bottlings in some years. His standards are maniacal. He’s been known to ride his bike to vineyards with a picnic lunch just to sit down and watch his growers tend their grapes. He offers a premium for the fruit so they’ll do things his way, and he wants them to know he’s paying full attention at every turn. Then it’s onto his cellar with rows of small-batch fermentation tanks and random tiny bins that seem barely capable of holding fruit. Dozens and dozens of lots from Chablis to Corton bubbling away as the mad scientist does what he was born to do. We keep going buying and recommending his wines for a very simple reason: He’s really, really good at his job.
