Sub-district Côte de Nuits
Village Bourgogne Passetoutgrains
ABV 11.5%

Stéphane warms the cuve towards the end of the fermentation to slightly broaden this often rather slimline style. Bright, and the volume is there, and so too is the pinging bright raspberry-red fruit and juicy definition one expects of a Passetoutgrains. Drinking range: 2017 - L&S (Nov 2015)

Currently out of stock in our warehouse.

Domaine Stéphane Magnien

Stéphane's is a small domaine, a mere 4.5 hectares, with one full hectare of that in regional wine - Passetoutgrains and Bourgogne - but it is blessed with two Grands Crus and also a long history of not messing with nature. No pesticides have ever been used on this land, and the plants are nearly all the old 'Pinot tordu' - twisted Pinot with its gnarly stems which are less vigorous than the modern clones and said by many to make wines with more finesse. Stéphane chaptalizes only to extend fermentations - these are wines which his father Jean-Paul used to describe as 'sage en alcool' - from 12 to 13% - the old vines do not make much alcohol. Wood use is also discreet, never exceeding 20% new wood on the Grands Crus, 15% on the Premiers Crus and on the village appellations, 10% new wood for one year only, then all into older barrels. Stéphane says that he aims to make wines with more richness than his father's, 'but not black angular wines which have less relief. Wines which leave your mouth clean and and clear, refreshed and revived and, above all, wanting another glass'.
