Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, May 2021

    This fine Macon highlights that quality can be also achieved from younger vine vineyards. The parcels that go into this cuvée have all been planted this century and the wine is a joy. Charming aromas of white peach and fuchsia. This is all about charm and elegance, it is naturally approachable. A wine that receives no barrel aging, it has a lively crispness of fruit, with flavours of satsuma and the layer of limestone-like minerality give a long and fulfilling finish.

Producer

Domaine Dominique Cornin

There is so much that makes Domaine Cornin, from the village of Chaintré in Macon, special. Father and son, Dominique and Romain, are men of the soil. Their attitude is summed up by Romain’s ambition for the estate, “accomplishing my dream to become a vigneron fills me with a sense of freedom: The freedom to spend my days, as I see fit, in the thick of my vines, true to my father’s work philosophy and his love of the soil. At his side, I aspire to create a wine that reflects who I am and that I enjoy sharing.” They have been organic practitioners since 2000, something of a rarity in the Maconnais. Their ideology is to show to all the true expression of both the fruit and the soil. These wines are a 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.

Region

Mâcon

Lying to the south of the Cote Chalonnaise and the north of Beaujolais, the town of Macon gives its name to wines produced from vineyards scattered among the surrounding villages. The climate is warmer than the Côte d'Or giving wines greater exposure to sun, less rain and reduced risk offrost. The vast majority are fresh, approachable whites made from Chardonnay. Reds and roses are also made principally from Gamay and a tiny amount of Pinot Noir.
