2012 Frederic Magnien 'Les Ruchots' 1er Cru Morey-St-Denis

Avg. Rating: 
(0)

Year in and year out, "Ruchots" ("the Little Rocks") is one of Fred Magnien's finest Premier Cru red Burgundies. We buy it almost every year. Bold and broad-shouldered, sweet aromas of red fruit and spice immediately jump out of the glass. Cherries, baking spice, iron, and mineral-laced tannins sit with good weight on the palate, leading into a deep and powerful finish.

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.
