Notes from Prince of Pinot:

"There is often confusion about the difference between the wines of Domaine Michel Magnien and those of Frédéric Magnien. Michel Magnien was a grower for years, land-rich with an extensive number of noble terroirs that he inherited from his forebears... Grand crus include Charmes Chambertin, Clos de la Roche, Chapelle Chambertin, Clos Saint Denis and Bonnes Mares. For years Michel was a grower and only bottle part of his production. Starting in the early 1990s, all of his production was entrusted to his son Frédéric, a winemaker that one French wine critic called "one of the most enterprising and innovative vignerons of his generation." Frédéric makes all the wines for his father's domaine, as well as wines under his own negociant label."

The '99 Gevrey-Chambertin Vielles Vignes is an old vine cuvee made from a selection of barrels by North Berkeley Imports prior to release.
