Maxime Magnon 'Le Bégou' Corbières Blanc, France 2017
Maxime Magnon makes some magical wines in Corbières. A true garagiste, he does everything himself, from farming nine parcels over eleven hectares, with steep vineyards that reach high altitudes, to all the vinification at a small cellar he rents. His wines offer great expressions of fruit & complex flavor and aromas. Importer Kermit Lynch, describes this wine as Mediterranean Burgundy, and quite frankly, we cannot think of a more accurate description.
