Since the proud winemaker, Dominique Cornin, is so poetic in describing his wines, we'll let him do the talking here..."Dare to be seduced by its golden robe, fresh lemon nose, anise accents and dramatic display of exotic fruit. Created from four plots, each with different qualities, this estate vintage is the epitome of the unique terroir mosaic an appellation is made up of. This wine is bursting with impatience to be enjoyed with a perfect dozen escargots. Isn’t life grand in Pouilly Fuissé?" Now, who wouldn't want to buy a bottle of this wine after reading that? Seriously, this is a great Pouilly-Fuisse, especially considering the price!
Dominique Cornin is a fourth generation vintner in the village of Chaintre, in the Maconnais region of southern Burgundy. He, along with his son, Romain, strive to make wine that shows only the purity of the Chardonnay grape, without any fancy winemaking tricks or dependence on new oak barrels to fatten their offerings. Along, with their horse, Coccinelle, they farm their vineyards organically, with great respect for nature and the land inherited from their forefathers.
