Lovely wine, 4 barrels produced in this low yield vintage. Pretty, delicate and pure. The purity of Sentiers expression is captured here by Stephane Magnien. Impressive. The '12s are concentrated and balanced. Stephane compares the '12s with his '10s.

Tasted blind at the annual "Burgfest" tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru Les Sentiers from Stéphane Magnien has a more complex bouquet than Digioia-Royer's Groseilles 2012 tasted alongside, with mineral-infused, quite broody and introspective black fruit. It gradually opens in the glass, revealing a light mint touch. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit and less black than suggested by the aromatics. There is a slight bitterness on the finish and some angularity, though time will help meld this together.

Situated on the route des Grands Crus, “Les Sentiers” offers complexity, length, and the femininity of Chambolle-Musigny. It will pair admirably with all manner of game, roasts, poultry (duck, guinea hen, pheasant).
