Domaine Cordier, Viré-Clessé Vieilles Vignes 2019
White Wine from France - Burgundy
A very impressive white Burgundy that received very high marks and, when the price was revealed at our Wine Champions tasting, especially approving noises. The quality of this plot of 60-year-old vines and the structure that comes from 12 months in 350-litre barrels were as noticeable as they were admired. An excellent-value fine wine.

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.
