DOMAINE FREDERIC MAGNIEN - COTES DE NUITS VILLAGE 2015
Grape : Chardonnay
History : Running from Dijon to Corgoloin, the Côte de Nuits extends over around twenty kilometers. The area is a long narrow strip of vineyards, no wider than a kilometer, extending over 1,500 hectares. The special feature of the soil in the Côte de Nuits is its relatively old layer of limestone said to date from the «Middle Jurassic» and be between 160 and 180 million years old.In these plots the roots of the vine penetrate deep through the fissures in the rock and draw out the minerals, which are the essential elements of the fresh, crystalline texture of this wine with its lively, chiseled tannins.
