Maxime is truly one of the movers and shakers in the wine world today. Pushing the natural wine movement forward and producing wines with integrity and personality. His property is in the South Eastern appellation of Corbiéres in the Languedoc-Roussillon region. Maxime understands that learning from the greats of the wine world gives you an unprecedented knowledge of the vineyard and winemaking, hence his time spent training with the famed Jean Foillard in Morgon. Truly a naturalist at heart, his wines show the terrior -- pure rock and garrigue, wild herbs and shrubs -- that covers this part of France.
Magnon’s studies in Beaujolais come across clearly in this Carignan forward field blend. In a region where the climate, weather, and rock are apt to produce wines that are cloying, whole cluster carbonic maceration, a technique borrowed from the aforementioned realm of Gamay, lends lift and freshness. Pair that with the quintessential southern savory herbiness, another nod to the north with ageing in old Chassagne-Montrachet barrels, and you’ve got an enigmatic winner.
