2015 Vieilles Vignes Christophe Cordier

Grapes Chardonnay
Colour White
Origin France, Burgundy
District Mâconnais
Village Mâcon Charnay
ABV 13.5%

Incredibly bright, pretty floral nose. At this level and in this vintage, it is this lift and lightness of touch that is so refreshing. The key here was harvesting at just the right moment. This was all picked before the end of August and before the week of particularly hot weather that hit the area at the beginning of September. Christophe buys in the grapes for this and has been sourcing from the same estate for years. He shares the crop with Verget and the quality is fantastic. This superb plot is all 'old vines' that are more than 50 years old. L&S (Dec 2016)

*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Part of Christophe Cordier’s small négociant range, this cuvée is always sourced from his neighbour’s vineyard. An elegant Mâcon dominated by flowers and ripe apple. The palate is ripe and concentrated but retains good focus and precision. Rating: 90-90 Christelle Guibert, Decanter (Nov 2017)

Vieilles Vignes mean what they say for once here at over 50 years old, as a result of which there's an aromatic lift to the fruit which is concentrated and rich in liquid apple flavours while the freshness of the natural acidity comes through strongly on the finish.

Christophe Cordier

Christophe Cordier, in addition to his domaine wines, has produced a limited number of wines as a négociant, buying in grapes from his neighbours. With control of the picking date and Christophe?s skill as a winemaker, these are very much in the line of the domaine wines.
