"Awarded three stars in the 2019 edition of the Bettane et Desseauve guide, Domaine Cordier is one of the domains that best epitomises the Pouilly-Fuissé appellation's soaring quality. The vines are farmed with one thing in mind: the constant quest for excellence.
The Pouilly-Fuissé Jean Gustave is named after the Cordier’s son, from a parcel inaccessible to tractors. It has a light golden colour. The nose delivers fruity aromas (citrus, white-fleshed fruits or exotic fruits depending on the vintage), as well as floral notes. The mouth reveals spicy notes that meld harmoniously with the fruity flavours. This wine is characterised by its delicious mineral acidity and superb taut finish. A mineral, fresh wine that will pair perfectly with slightly spicy dishes."
Growing in and around the Burgundy village of Fuissé, on the finest terroirs the Macon region has to offer, Domaine Cordier's 30 hectares vineyards are cultivated with the greatest respect for the grape and for the Domaine's pursuit of excellence. This is a family domaine, directed by Christophe Cordier, a winemaker determined to enhance the terroirs and coax out their full potential. The domaine produces fine white wines from the Chardonnay grape, often likened to the best Grands Crus.
The Domaine Cordier has 2 magnificent gravity-fed cellars, fully air-conditioned with humidity control in order to allow high-precision work with the greatest respect for the raw material. Beautiful and long aging on lees is carried out thanks to 4 barrel cellars. A selection of the best French oak with a very fine texture, exclusively from tall trees, are toasted in house.
The Domaine Cordier works a mosaic of 100 plots, spread over 7 municipalities scattered over the hillsides of the Mâconnais: Fuissé, Charnay-les-Mâcon, Loché, Leynes, Chasselas, Vergisson and Davayé. A mosaic of vines, a mosaic of terroirs, a real wealth for Christophe Cordier who takes pleasure in working with this diversity as if each plot were a challenge. “A difficulty in terms of logistics” he admits, but a real strategic choice for the Estate which aspires to create the greatest wines of the Mâconnais.
