“Christophe appears to have boundless energy and ambition. His Domaine is amongst the finest in Macon. Hero of the Year“ – Robert Parker
“The excellent Domaine Cordier wines are easier than many to find. They may not be cheap but are more satisfying and complex than many a Cote d’Or white” – Jancis Robinson
Producer Profile – The Story
RAISON D’ETRE – Cru Pouilly Fuisse, Macon Milly-La-Martine Clos du Four
FAMILY RUN – Roger Cordier started the Domaine in 1930 with just 5 hectares. When Christophe took over in 1987 he stopped selling to negociants and focused on improving the vineyards, reducing yields and of course making better wine as a consequence. Christophe manages both the family’s domaine and his own negociant wines.
GRAVITY FED – Christophe recently launched an entirely gravity fed winery with the aim to improve further the quality of the wine he’s producing. This alongside what he describes as responsible farming followed by no fining and light filtration before bottling are just part of the reason he is so well regarded in the region.
