Basic Info

The individual vineyards of Dominique Cornin are an apt reflection of the man himself. Each parcel carries a part of the family's history in the Mâconnais. Les Chevières holds the same plot his father planted over 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 each further into the past of Cornin's roots in the vineyards. In the same manner that these old vines labor to yield the fruit, Dominique subtly guides the wine from vine to bottle with little interjection. Such is the unassuming standard of high quality from Cornin. Dominique bottles both of his Mâcon-Villages from the respective villages, with an emphasis to reflect the individual parcels with each bottling. He farms by the same biodynamic methods as the acclaims Domaine Lerory, Leflaive and Zind-Humbrecht; yet his wines sell for a fraction of their prices. Dominique's only motive is to give his vineyards the best chance to express their terroir, and they reward us all for the attention.
