 Certified biodynamic in 2015 Domaine Michel Magnien (18ha) is run by forward thinking 5th generation winemaker Frédéric Magnien. This conversion has released a greater expression of terroir in the wines. In 2015 Frédéric ceased using new French oak barrels, replacing them with 160 litre terracotta amphora.

In our tasting we tasted barrel versus amphorae, it was obvious to see that the amphorae brings a freshness and life to the wines that the oak cannot provide. All of the wines we have brought in are aged in amphorae. The style of Frédéric’s wines seeks freshness and fragrance. Many of his vineyards are at higher altitudes, naturally producing cooler climate expressions.

Monts Luisants is planted at 350m, high for the rolling hills of Burgundy. In recognition of a world where wines are released and drunk too young Frederic releases wines when he feels they are open enough to express their terroir in the glass.

Tasting Notes

Pinot Noir (Biodynamic since 2005). Domaine Michel Magnien has a long and somewhat complicated history typical of the family domaines of Burgundy. Michel Magnien is a fourth-generation producer who worked for decades with his father, sometimes as a tenant farmer. Today his son Frederic, who also has his own domaine, is part of the business, along with Dominique, Michel’s wife. Domaine Michel Magnien owns about 25 acres of Grand Cru, Premier Cru and Villages vineyards and it is based in Morey Saint Denis. There are important parcels in Gevrey-Chambertin, Les Cazetiers, Morey Saint Denis, Clos de la Roche and Clos Saint Denis. Robert M. Parker Jr. has noted that the wines of Michel Magnien possess “a good deal of charm and character.”
