As a négociant, Magnien differentiates himself in that he works closely with his partner vine growers throughout the year, selecting only older-vine parcels that are cared for to his exacting standards. His own teams pick the grapes at harvest, a further qualitative step. (Most négociants buy juice, not grapes.) Most of the vineyards Magnien purchases grapes from are either certified organic or in the process of conversion. In the cellar, juice is fermented on indigenous yeasts; wines are aged only in the highest-grade François Frères oak—a practice followed by other exclusive estates, such as Domaine de la Romanée-Conti and Comtes de Lafon. Magnien chooses to use mostly older barrels for aging, with approximately 10 percent new oak for premier and grand cru wines. All wines are unfined and unfiltered.
