I tread lightly when it comes to France's southwest Languedoc region. When a Burgundian chooses to venture south after training in Morgon, there's bound to be something special at the end of the rainbow. Magnon's influence from Burgundy and Beaujolais is clear the moment you put your nose in the glass!

Maxime Magnon departs from the Languedoc norm. Neighboring producers often shy away from this style, instead opting for dark extraction and density for the sake of powerful impact. Magnon flips these typical Languedoc sensibilities, relying on transparency and minimal sulfur at bottling to highlight the most natural characteristics of this ancient hillside planting. Here, the reds have a paler hue and deliver the freshness of wild strawberry and more red fruit tones.

Previously, Maxime worked under Morgon icon, Jean Foillard. He then traversed through the Languedoc, spending time with Faugères' most respected name, Didier Barral. There, he came across an abandoned plot of old Carignan vines in nearby Corbières. He quickly jumped on this unique hillside to embark on a new chapter.
