The estate

Born in 1969, Frédéric MAGNIEN represents the fifth generation of vine-growers in his family.
When he was 17, Frédéric worked in the 10-hectares family estate in Morey-Saint-Denis with his father Michel Magnien.
In order to deepen his knowledge, he decided to go working in Australia and California at the age of 22. After having discovered new technologies, he came back in France for the 1993 harvest. Then, he went into the University of Dijon where he obtained a diploma in oenology. In september 1995, Frédéric created his own wine-merchant activity : « FREDERIC MAGNIEN » with the goal of differentiating the two acivities of vine-grower and the winemaker.
Frédéric Magnien does not own any vineyard (the price for buying vines is very high). He essentially works as an adviser to vine-growers with who he works in very close collaboration during the whole year. He selects the best plots, mainly of old vines (over 40 years) and buys very high quality grapes at perfect ripeness among the best appellations in the Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune and Chablis areas.
Then, Frédéric and his team run all the different stages : harvest, vinification, ageing, bottling and shipping. His goal in the coming years is to incite vine-growers to turn to organic culture in order to improve the quality of the soils.
Nowadays, Frédéric Magnien has become one of the most famous name in the Côte de Nuits region.
His philosophy is to work in harmony with the natural elements according to the seasons and the lunar cycle.
