A great buy. Stephane Magnien took over his family’s very small, 4.5 hectare domaine in 2009, and is making some truly beautiful wines – a rising star on the Cote de Nuits. Most parcels are in Morey-Saint-Denis with a couple of parcels in Chambolle-Musigny and also some regional appellations.
No herbicides have ever been permitted in their vineyards, thus helping to ensure that the soils here are well aerated and organically alive.
From a tiny 0.5 hectare plot and made entirely from Pinot Noir (the Coteaux designation also allows the use of Gamay) this is seriously impressive with a beautifully deep purple colour and the structure of a much higher priced village wine A rarity these days, proper Burgundy at an old school price, what could be better!
