2020 Domaine Sébastien Magnien

We are delighted this afternoon to be featuring another talented young grower who is new to our range, Sébastien Magnien from Meursault.
Sébastien transferred to revamped cellars in Meursault from his family’s property in the Hautes Côtes de Beaune. Covering 12 hectares, the domaine is managed according to sustainable principles, the whites coming from the Hautes Côtes, Saint-Romain and Meursault and the reds from Volnay, Pommard, Beaune and the Hautes Côtes. With a hands-off approach in the cellar, and a minimalist use of oak that lets the terroir speak for itself, the wines are pure fruited and focused.
The 2020s showed particularly well at our en primeur tasting a few weeks ago. A ‘pure and delicious chardonnay’ according to Jasper Morris, the Hautes-Côtes de Beaune Blanc was especially appealing, while the Hautes-Côtes de Beaune Blanc Rouge was vibrant and juicy. A ‘rich plum pudding of a wine’ with a ‘long aftertaste’ says Jasper Morris, the Beaune Les Bons Feuvres was as flamboyant as we remembered tasting it back in November, while the Pommard Les Perrières showed lovely succulent fruit with plenty of depth – a great buy in this vintage.
Quantities are increasing limited so please contact us as soon as possible to secure a few cases of this excellent vintage.

These wines are offered en primeur subject to availability. Shipment in the Autumn of 2022.
