Domaine Cordier, Mâcon Milly-Lamartine Clos du Four 2015

White Wine from France - Burgundy
0 star rating 0 Reviews
Christophe Cordier has changed his style: he used to be one of the last to pick, but now he harvests earlier to conserve freshness. He has created wonderful 2015s. From a cool spot in the Mâconnais, this is surprisingly taut and fresh, with a lemony scent and refreshing palate. Aged in foudres to avoid masking the mineral style.

Domaine Roger Cordier

Christophe Cordier, son of Roger, is a piercingly blue-eyed human dynamo who exudes enthusiasm and industry. He believes in low yields and late harvesting, achieved with poor soils and severe pruning and it’s evident in his recognisable house style - concentrated, full and rich but upheld by wonderful acidity, beautifully balanced and always punching above the weight of the appellation (Saint-Véran en Faux being a notable example).

Combining the domaine and its negociant arm, Christophe Cordier presides over 30-odd hectares over a number of village appellations in the greater Mâconnais, including Pouilly-Fuissé. An impressively high-tech winery includes a gravity bottling facility and a raft of high-quality large French oak casks which are coopered off-site but toasted under Christophe’s supervision. A new cellar built in the village of Fuissé completed for the 2012 harvest has been fitted out with more large foudres for fermenting and storing wine, as well as more space for 500, 350 and 228 litre barrels which will allow Christophe to extend the ageing of wines like Mâcon Milly, a wine from a cool spot that benefits from extra time in wood on its lees to develop and open out the flavours and aromas.

Burgundy 2015 Macon, Chalonnais, AC.

For whites 2015 is a vintage of ripe wines, some fresh and some powerful, but all very satisfying and balanced. All producers said that the quality of the grapes was one of the best they had ever seen and no sorting was necessary. It was a warm vintage, but not excessively hot like 2003, and the wines are fresher and better balanced than the 2009s. The combination of richness and structure has produced a wonderful vintage which will keep well.
