1998 Frederick Magnien Gevrey-Chambertin Les Seuvrees
Gevrey-Chambertin, Burgundy, France
WB Rating: 86

Alcohol by volume: 13.0%
Price at time of purchase: $18.00 (North Berkeley Wines)
Type: Pinot Noir / Burgundy
Principal varietal(s): Pinot Noir

If this wine had a bit more oomph it would be rated a few points higher. It leaves you with a frustrating touch of Burgundy magic but then disappears. In any case, this is a pure, balanced, flavorful Pinot Noir with classic cherry and rose-petal-like aromas that follow through, at a lower intensity level, in the flavors. A refined and elegant wine that's simply too restrained in its flavor. Purchased as part of an excellent sale; it would be overpriced at $30+. - HK 2002-03-09
