Domaine Michel Magnien (Michel Magnien Estate) in Morey-Saint-Denis is now managed by Michel Magnien’s son, Frédéric Magnien.
In 1988 Michel Magnien took over his father’s vineyards as a tenant farmer and continued to deliver the Bernard Magnien annual harvest to the Morey-Saint-Denis cooperative.
In 1993, Frédéric Magnien joined the family business and persuaded his father that they should bottle the entire harvest themselves.
Domaine Michel Magnien & Fils was created in 1998 with a label representing the first three letters of the first names of the estate’s three associates: Dominique, Michel and Frédéric. It was later changed in 2007.
Today, 19 hectares of Grands Crus, Premiers Crus, Villages and regional appellation vines are grown on the Michel Magnien & Fils estate. The quality of Michel Magnien wines reflects the meticulous care he confers on his vineyards.
