2013 Frederic Magnien Echezeaux Grand Cru

Avg. Rating: 
(0)

Fred's plots of Echezeaux are profound yet elegant, blending older-vine fruit from the lieu-dits "Les Treux" and "Les Poulaillères." (It is in this latter lieu-dit that Domaine de la Romanée-Conti has its own Echezeaux vines, FYI)

Frédéric Magnien is one of Burgundy’s most talented native sons. The fifth generation of a winemaking lineage born in the charming village of Morey-Saint-Denis, he produces a mind-boggling array of wines – as many as 50 separate bottlings in some years. His standards are maniacal. He’s been known to ride his bike to vineyards with a picnic lunch just to sit down and watch his growers tend their grapes. He offers a premium for the fruit so they’ll do things his way, and he wants them to know he’s paying full attention at every turn. Then it’s onto his cellar with rows of small-batch fermentation tanks and random tiny bins that seem barely capable of holding fruit. Dozens and dozens of lots from Chablis to Corton bubbling away as the mad scientist does what he was born to do. We keep going buying and recommending his wines for a very simple reason: He’s really, really good at his job.
