Now run by Frédéric Magnien, who is the fifth generation to run the family estate, they are based in Burgundys' Côte de Nuits village of Morey-Saint-Denis. Since 2008 the domaine began operating on a completely organic basis and they followed this up in 2015 by becoming a Demeter approved biodynamic estate, an approach they're strongly committed to.
The domaine has holdings across the villages of Morey-Saint-Denis, Gevrey-Chambertin, Chambolle-Musigny, Vosne Romanée and others. Included in these are a number of premier cru and grand cru vineyards. Frédéric's father, Michel, gained an international reputation for his full bodied, concentrated reds which was tempered somewhat by his son, when he joined the estate in 1993. The amount of new oak has been slowly reduced to give wines with more aroma, fruit and elegance but that still retain the trademark Magnien depth and richness.
