2009 Frederic Magnien - Morey St. Denis Ruchots (750ml) (750)

2009 Frederic Magnien - Morey St. Denis Ruchots (750ml)

Organically cultivated and always hand-raised and harvested, Frederic Magnien wines are made in small quantities and with serious care. He's the only winemaker we know (that's not of retirement age!) in Burgundy who knows each hill and valley like the back of his hand-and this know-how translates directly to wines that are honest and terroir-true, a delectable (and oh-so drinkable) walking tour of centuries of tradition distilled into one perfect bottle.

Make no bones about it: 2009 is delicious Burgundy. The supple texture of the wines we've tasted again and again is undeniable and irresistible. There's an almost creamy sensation to the ripe fruit you'll find in each bottle-this is Burgundy with serious finesse and Pinot fruit that is both precise and succulent at once.

Stephen Tanzer concurs. "The best [wines] are wonderfully silky, scented pinots, fully ripe but not roasted, with a rare level of fleshiness and compelling sweetness of fruit. I love their surprisingly fresh red fruit character. They will likely be delicious on release, but they also appear to possess the stuffing and phenolic ripeness for at least mid-term aging. The greatest among them have the concentration of phenolic material and balance to surprise with their longevity."

It is rare to enjoy a vintage that delivers such juicy drinking pleasure right from the start; even rarer to have that same vintage show such promise for the cellar.

Magnien has pulled out all the stops and crafted peerless Burgundy that delivers serious pleasure with staying power-these are bottles that we're sure to be enjoying for years (decades?) to come.
