At A Glance

One of the greatest producers in the Mâconnais, Domaine Cordier is in the village of Fuissé, managing a mosaic of over 100 parcels, spread over 32 hectares. Cordier and his team, work the vineyards biodynamically, without tractors, and often plowed by horse. The wines benefit from progressive techniques on pruning and canopy management, and biodynamic remedies made with natural rainwater. Small vinifications are made by parcel, in neutral barrels with native yeast, and moved by gravity. With Premier Cru classification completed in 2020, over 30% of Cordier’s carefully selected old-vine parcels are within these 22 classified vineyards. Christophe makes 30 different terroir focused Chardonnays with an average production of 800 cases. Top cuvees are compared to the finest Grand Cru bottlings of Burgundy. Demeter certification expected for the 2024 vintage.

Like all great wine houses, Domaine Cordier produces exceptional wines by investing the necessary time and attention and bringing all its know-how to bear: very short pruning, meticulous de-budding, manual thinning out the leaves, respect and preservation of soil life, hand-picking terroir by terroir.” –Christophe Cordier
