A Toronto-based collector whose passion in wine ignited while dining frequently in the city's restaurants. He then married a woman from France and spent extended periods travelling around the country, tasting wines from all the top regions. All the wines except the magnum of port were bought directly from local importers or the LCBO. Everything was stored from purchase at the Vintage Conservatory in Toronto.
The wine in this lot has a score of 95+ from Robert Parker and the following tasting note -The 2020 Ruchottes-Chambertin Grand Cru may even surpass its 2019 predecessor at maturity! Mingling aromas of wild berries and plums with hints of forest floor, rose petals and blood orange, it's full-bodied, concentrated and seamless, with velvety tannins and an elegant, sensual profile, concluding with a long, perfumed finish. As I wrote last year, Charles Magnien continues his rapid ascent through the Burgundian firmament. The vineyard work here is serious- the vines hedged comparatively high, with cultivated soils and planted with the family's own massal selections. In the brand-new cuverie, first employed in 2019, vinification is gentle, with fermentation temperatures kept comparatively cool and pump-overs rather than punch-downs. New oak, largely from Tonnellerie Cavin, is increasingly deftly employed. And the result? 2020 marks a step up even over the very successful 2019s, as Magnien's supple, seamless style has married very well with the concentration and vibrancy of the vintage.
