Domaine Michel Magnien Clos Saint Denis 2012
|Appellation||Cote de Nuits|
|Brand||Domaine Michel Magnien|
Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Clos St Denis has a placid bouquet, perhaps the most refined and cohesive of Frederic's 2012s, with fresh strawberry and raspberry scents interlaced with limestone and a touch of violet (rendering it more in style of a Clos-de-la-Roche.) The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins on the entry. There is a dense core of sultry black cherry and raspberry fruit, segueing into a masculine, slightly austere finish. This feels just a little taciturn and curmudgeonly compared to its peers.
