2013 MAXIME MAGNON La Rozeta Corbieres
Maxime Magnon produces some of my favourite wines from his old bush vines high up in the Haut-Corbières. He is a super star amongst France’s new wave of free spirited restaurateurs, particularly in Paris where he could sell his entire production. Stylistically his wines have an uncanny resemblance to those of Eric Pfifferling at L’Anglore in Tavel - that is to say they have superb freshness, vitality and most of all – beautiful and alluring fragrance and texture. They have gone up a bit in price ex-cellar due to demand and supply I suppose but in the big world of fine wine I think these are still a bargain.
