New Arrival | Domaine Cornin

The best introductions in life come via friends. So, when Romain Cornin from the village of Chaintré in Macon was tipped off by Arnaud Mortet that he should look no further than Goedhuis for a new UK importer, we were delighted to make his acquaintance. These wines are a total joy, sourced from some of the oldest vineyards in the region. There is complete respect to individual terroirs and they have an excitement to them, fresh and bright but also juicy and warming.

    The south-easterly exposure of the vineyards of Chaintré guarantees perfect ripeness for these Chardonnay grapes, beautifully highlighted in this singe vineyard plot of Serreuxdiéres. Attractive aromas of bright clementine and apricot balance a subtle richness of fruit with a lift of freshness and a long, creamy textured finish.

    The 2020 Mâcon-Chaintré Les Serreuxdières, which comes from a vineyard close to the village of Chânes, on limestone soils. It has plenty of energy on the nose, quite tensile, just a very subtle petrolly scent lending complexity. The palate is well balanced with that menthol leitmotif that runs through many of the wines this vintage. It just needs a little more grip on the finish, but still promising. Drink 2023 - 2029

    Selected from aged vineyards planted between 1909 and 1965 in Fuissé. This is a wonderful example of the bright mineral purity of fruit that is the hallmark of the domaine and the delightful opulence that is Pouilly Fuissé. Striking lemon citrus aromas, with layers of scented white stone fruits and a hint of fresh double cream. This has a graceful breadth that coats the mouth and is full of life and energy. The flavours have a touch of tropical fruits, though always subtle, and the overall clarity of this wine shows the great class of the appellation.

  • Neal Martin, June 2022, Score: 90

    The 2020 Pouilly-Fuissé underwent a slightly longer ageing on the lees than normal, around 21 months in total, since many of Cornin's tanks lay empty after the 2021 vintage. The nose is well defined with hints of vanilla coming from the 30% oak ageing, the palate well-defined with a spicy, stem ginger-infused entry and a pretty, citrus-led finish. This is worth seeking out. Drink 2023 - 2032

  • Decanter, October 2021, Score: 91

    Romain Cornin, based in the village of Chaintré in Macon, has been producing organically at this 10ha estate since 2000. The vines were planted between 1909 and 1965 with oak being used more sparingly than in many Pouilly-Fuissés. The resulting wine has an intriguing, floral and herbal nose, and although quite plush on the palate, there is plenty of drive and energy here with restrained oak and complex flavours of fennel and aniseed, balancing some tropical notes.
