2018 Stephane Magnien Morey Saint Denis Premier Cru Les Faconnieres



From a parcel of old vines grown in Les Faconnières, one of the best situated climats in Morey-Saint-Denis, located beneath Clos de la Roche and between the Millandes and Charrières premier crus. This shows a deep red/black color, with earthy aromas of black cherry and blackberry, earthy and meaty with violet and a bit of southern “garrigue.” The palate is rich and ripe with black fruit liqueur and hints of licorice, lemon zest and earth. The finish is expansive, mouthwatering, gamey, mineral, and long, with fine persistence. This gorgeous Faconnieres is delicious now, as the complex, ripe fruit wraps around the firm acidity, mineral flavors and elegant tannins. Best to wait 5 to 8 years and enjoy until 2035-2040. Highly recommended
