Frédéric Magnien is part of the 5th generation of a large family of winegrowers. He learned the basics of the trade from his father. Seeking to deepen his knowledge, he trained in the United States alongside Josh Jensen, in Domaine Calera and in Australia with Garry Farr in Domaine Bannockburn Vineyard. He began to take part in the management of Domaine Michel Magnien in 1993. At the same time, he continued his studies until he obtained a diploma in Oenologist Technician at the University of Burgundy. If before the harvest was sold to a cooperative, he decides to produce the wine within the property. Not content with only grapes from the family vineyard, he created a trading company with which he bought the best harvests to experiment with new aromas.
The harvest is manual and the vinification is carried out in stainless steel vats with indigenous yeasts and manual punching down. Aging takes place in oak barrels.
On the nose, there are beautiful notes of fruit sprinkled with spices and pepper. The palate is balanced with a lively and pleasant attack followed by an elegant finish. A delicious wine from the first sip.
