There are vintages where Frank does not reach the required quality and perfection of the grapes for the Grand Vin Magma®, like 2005, 2010 and 2018. In these cases he has the option of declassifying and using the grapes in other wines like our MunJebel® classico, Susucaru® or keeping the grapes for a single vineyard MunJebel® to show the quality and personality of this grand cru even though unfortunately not reaching the level for the Grand Vin, Magma®. This is what he did in 2010 with MunJebel® 10th Anniversary and again he will bring out this wine in 2018 as MunJebel® BB which are the initials of the vineyard Barbabecchi. Celebrating MunJebel® 10th Anniversary by bringing out this wine in 2018 as MunJebel® BB which are the initials of the vineyard Barbabecchi.
