"Cazetiers is effectively Charles Magnien’s home vineyard and he knows it intimately. Since he has a whole hectare and a half, I am delighted that he makes great wine here from vines that average 65 years old. Beautifully ripe yet with a joyous balance, this absolutely fills the mouth while resolutely insisting on its mineral aftertaste."
94-96 Points, Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy, Nov 2019
"The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers 1er Cru comes from 1.47 hectares that cover the four soil types within the vineyard; Magnien informed me that he is the only grower who has all four. The vines are Pinot Magnien and some are up to 100 years old. A gorgeous bouquet of pure black cherries, blueberry and light violet aromas bursts from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and a fine bead of acidity, and lightly spiced, leading into a harmonious, persistent, mineral-driven finish. This should evolve into a gorgeous Les Cazetiers."
93-95 Points, Neil Martin, Vinous Media, Jan 2020

The Magnien family is one of the oldest wine making families in Burgundy and in particular in Côte de Nuits thanks to the Domaine Henri Magnien, a family estate that took root in Gevrey Chambertin in the 1600s. No less than twelve generations have taken advantage of a magnificent plot made largely of old vines on Gevrey-Chambertin and Corton.
The estate as it exists today was set up by Henri Magnien in 1987, and presently operated by Charles Magnien. The vineyard covers 6 hectares of old vines (massal selection of the family). The culture and the vinification are rather traditional. Charles invested in the cellar to further increase the quality of the wines opening a new winery in 2018. The wines have a lot of charm, suppleness and elegance, with a classic use of the new barrel and a moderate extraction.
