I met with Stéphane Magnien, 4th generation of winegrowers in his family, this past February. His wines were complex; full of character and elegance. Based out of Morey-St. Denis in Burgundy’s revered Côte de Nuits, Domaine Stéphane Magnien, shines as a beacon of tradition and excellence in winemaking despite its small size.

At Domaine Stéphane Magnien, winemaking is elevated to an art form, characterized by meticulous attention to detail and an unwavering commitment to quality. The estate’s vineyards, tended with sustainable practices, reflect a profound respect for the land and the terroir it embodies. Hand-harvested grapes, carefully selected at optimal ripeness, ensure the fullest expression of flavor and aroma in every bottle.

In the cellar, a harmonious blend of traditional and modern winemaking techniques enhances the quality and complexity of the wines. Oak barrels, sourced from premier cooperages, play a crucial role in refining the wines, imparting subtle nuances and texture.

Among their distinguished portfolio, Domaine Stéphane Magnien is celebrated for its exceptional range of Pinot Noir expressions. From the elegant and ethereal Chambolle-Musigny to the robust and structured Gevrey-Chambertin, each wine bears testament to the estate’s craftsmanship and dedication to excellence.
