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.
Sweet spice, dark fruit and a touch of woodland aromas dominate the nose. Balanced and classy, it is an elegant Morey displaying ripe tannins and flavours of ripe dark cherry. Relatively forward, with delicious energy, drink now and over the next five years.
