Winemaker Notes

Magnien says this is the best "basic" Bourgogne he's ever made, and we're hard-pressed to disagree. Round and sweet, with endless spicy fruit and suppleness in the middle that makes drinking almost too easy. Aged 10% in new wood; Magnien sourced concentrated berries from mostly Brochon, on the Gevrey side, as well as from Marsannay and Fixin (and a small helping of declassified Chambolle-Musigny and Morey-St.-Denis fruit, too.)

Frederic Magnien
Born in May 1969, in one of the most beautiful wine growing regions in the world, Frederic Magnien is a 5th generation winemaker from the Magnien family. He studied at the viticultural Lycee (high school) in Beaune, while helping his father in the vineyards and cellars in his spare time.

In September 1995, he made one of the most important decisions of his life; he set up a Maison de Negoce (wine trading house) under his own name.

His objective is to distinguish the work of a "wine producer" from that of a "winemaker": Frederic Magnien does not own vines but plays an important consultancy role with the wine growers with whom he works closely throughout the year. This enables him to select plots of mainly old vines (over 40 years of age) and to buy very high quality grapes, at optimum maturity, from among the noblest of the Cote de Nuits appellations.

He can then, at the vinification stage and using identical casks and aging, explore the aromatic diversity of the Cote de Nuits terroirs, building on the dedicated work of the wine grower.

The House of Frederic Magnien started off in 1995 with 21 barrels containing 5 appellations and by 2011 could claim 1000 barrels.

Cortese’s territory was once part of the city-state of Genoa, and still the grape practically owes more allegiance to Liguria than the region who grows it: Piedmont. At the far southeastern corner of Piedmont, in the province of Alessandria, Cortese was first recorded in the early 17th century and has no known relatives. It is most highly regarded in this locations today, know as Gavi, and because of its freshness as well as in best cases, chalky minerality, commonly populates the fish restaurants’ wine lists of the Ligurian coast. Cortese grows well in other parts of Piedmont: Cortese dell’Alto Monferrato a few miles west and just over a few hills to the east, in the Colli Tortonesi. But there Cortese doesn’t always achieve the ripeness, or get the winemaking proficiency that it does when grown on the limestone-rich soils of Gavi. While some renowned Barolo producers produce stellar Gavi, such as Michele Chiarlo and Pio Cesare, the region has no shortage of its own dedicated producers.
