Winemaker: Frédéric Magnien
, Côte de Nuits, Burgundy
Magnien wines are the gateway to Burgundy. Choosing to explore his wines is an exciting first step for a wine drinker toward becoming more involved with wine -- into the infinite variety and beautiful mystery that is Burgundian Pinot Noir.
For those just getting to know Burgundy wines, Magnien is a masterful guide, as he offers an unparalleled selection of wines from the region's finest vineyards. Yet for Burgundy connoisseurs, Magnien is the benchmark for exploring the characteristics of grand and premier cru wines: the licorice of Chambertin, the incense of Morey “Ruchots,” the orange essence of Échezeaux.
The signature of Magnien Burgundy is the perfumes and tastes of late summer -- dark, ripe plums and sweet, concentrated blackberries, cooled by the laurel-tinged air of the forest.
