The Mâconnais

The Land of Plenty
With Tim Magnus
Jan 23 2021

Summary: 

The Mâconnais is the most southerly area of Bourgogne before one reaches Beaujolais and the Rhône Valley. The area produces some of the greatest value Chardonnay wines in the world but has long been overlooked with much more attention being lavished on its more prestigious northern neighbours in the Côte d’Or. With increasing prices and demand for the best white wines of the Côte d’Or and the elevation of 22 climats within Pouilly-Fuissé to 1er Cru status, there has never been a more opportune time to discover this dynamic region and find out the outstanding values it has to offer.

Presenter: Timothy Magnus, DipWSET, Weinakademiker

An Australian national residing in Switzerland, Timothy has been teaching wine courses for nearly a decade. Timothy spends a week nearly every month in the Bourgogne wine region and has accumulated a true expertise about what is happening in Bourgogne today and which domaines are the stars of tomorrow.

Timothy founded his own company Magnus Vinum several years ago with the specific aim to offer high-end Bourgogne wine education. Additionally, he imports a range of small, quality Bourgogne domaines into Switzerland. Timothy has been teaching about Bourgogne internationally for almost 10 years.

He possesses a deep understanding of the region, its economy, producers and terroirs and is a leading authority on Bourgogne
