- Frederic Mugnier was working as an engineer in Saudi Arabia at the time of his father's death, and missing the French life, headed back to Burgundy, helping with the family's 1984 bottlings and then helming the winemaking on the 1985's. His non-interventionist, yet science-based decision making smacks of his engineer training. He farms lutte raisonée and tries to remove himself from the winemaking equation.
