The 2015 Pouilly Fuisse is a blend of several plots from around the village of Chaintre and is matured mainly in tank. It has a straightforward, clean, lightly honeyed bouquet with just a hint of yellow flower and freshly baked popcorn. The palate is fresh on the entry with a keen line of acidity. I appreciate the tension here, very harmonious and quite complex, the finish offering subtle orange rind and quince notes. This is a very well-crafted Pouilly Fuissé that comes highly recommended.

The individual vineyards of this domaine are an apt reflection of the Cornin family. Each parcel carries a part of the family’s history in the Maconnais. Les Chevrières holds the same plot Dominique’s grandfather planted more than 50 years ago. Clos Reyssié bears fruit from the same vines his father put to seed in 1938. The 100-year-old parcel in Les Serreudières reaches even deeper into the Cornins’ roots in Macon.
In the same manner that these old vines labor to yield the fruit, Dominique subtly guides the wine from vine to bottle with little intervention. He recently has been joined in this effort by his son, Romain. One of the youngest of a new generation of wine-producers, Romain is amazingly knowledgeable, having studied under his father as well as some of the most talented growers in the region.
The Cornins use only biodynamic farming methods, and their only motive is to give each of their vineyards the best chance to express its own terroir. All the wines are fermented in stainless-steel tanks, and the single-vineyard wines are aged in used oak barrels. They bottle both Macon-Villages from their respective villages, reflecting the individual parcels with each bottling. Cornin wines are voluptuous, rich and succulent, with a distinctively fresh and ethereal quality.
