"The Pouilly-Fuissé from Domaine Cordier is the fruit of thorough growing and meticulous vinification by a property striving to craft fine white wines equal to those of the Côte d'Or. The identity of the terroir is preserved beginning with work on the soils and the vines themselves. Wild yeasts come into action in the winery, temperatures during fermentation are strictly controlled, and the wine matures at length on lees and in wood, where it gains substantial flavour and texture.
In the glass we find a pale golden wine that exhales notes of white fruit, citrus, exotic fruit, white flowers, and minerals. Its palate balances the vivacity of the grape with the richness of its maturation.
We recommend savouring this cuvée in its first 10 years, alongside flavourful dishes like freshwater fish, creamy risotto, or a cauliflower and parmesan gratin."
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.
