Born in May 1969, in one of the most beautiful wine growing regions in the world, Frédéric Magnien is a 5th generation wine producer from the Magnien family. While studying at the viticultural "Lycée" (high school) in Beaune, he was accustomed to helping his father in the vineyards and in the cellars. To gain experience with other wine producers, he participated in the 1986 wine harvest at Jean-Noël Gagnard’s estate in Chassagne-Montrachet. Eager to build his knowledge, he left to work abroad in 1992. He started with 4 months in California at Josh Jemsen's Calera estate, followed by 6 months in Australia with Garry Farr at the Bannockburn Vineyard estate. Returning in time for the 1993 harvest, he enrolled at the University of Dijon, where he graduated with his oenology diploma. In September 1995, he made one of the most important decisions of his life; he created a wine trade house under his own name: FREDERIC MAGNIEN. His objective is to distinguish the activities of a "wine producer" from that of a "wine maker": Frédéric Magnien does not own vineyards himself but provides an important consultancy role to the wine growers with whom he works closely throughout the year. This allows him to select plots mainly of old vines (over 40 years of age) and to buy very high quality grapes, at optimum maturity, from amongst the noblest Côtes de Nuits "appellations". He can therefore, at vinification stage and using identical casks and ageing, explore the aromatic diversity of the Côtes de Nuits "terroirs" (combination of local land and climate) building on the dedication of the wine grower. The House of Frédéric Magnien therefore started up in 1995 with 21 casks of 5 different "appellations". " We inherited from previous generations an attachment to this Burgundy land, unique in the world, and a passion for a beautiful craft." Read less

2010 Initally sour, small mildly sour cat's claw grab on the tongue at the middle. Long mouthwatering to the end. Didn't like it. Not robust or smooth. Probabaly better 2012.
