COMMENTARY: As a young wine professional in my 20s, I found Mâcon-Villages to be an excellent introduction to Burgundy. The 2017 Dominique Cornin Mâcon-Chaintre to recall those fond memories. TASTING NOTES: This wine is zesty and racy. Enjoy its aromas and flavors of pure apple and chalk with panko-coated, sautéed Petrale. (Tasted: October 7, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Dominique Cornin  Winery Image
The individual vineyards of this domaine are an apt reflection of the Cornin family. Each parcel carries a part of the family’s history in the Maconnais. Les Chevrières holds the same plot Dominique’s grandfather planted more than 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 even deeper into the Cornins’ roots in Macon.

In the same manner that these old vines labor to yield the fruit, Dominique subtly guides the wine from vine to bottle with little intervention. He recently has been joined in this effort by his son, Romain. One of the youngest of a new generation of wine-producers, Romain is amazingly knowledgeable, having studied under his father as well as some of the most talented growers in the region.

The Cornins use only biodynamic farming methods, and their only motive is to give each of their vineyards the best chance to express its own terroir. All the wines are fermented in stainless-steel tanks, and the single-vineyard wines are aged in used oak barrels. They bottle both Macon-Villages from their respective villages, reflecting the individual parcels with each bottling. Cornin wines are voluptuous, rich and succulent, with a distinctively fresh and ethereal quality.

Macon Villages Wine

Maconnais, Burgundy

View all products

Crisp, balanced and delicately floral, Chardonnays from the Macon Villages are often made in the unoaked style and offer a magnificent sampling of what white Burgundy has to offer—without years of waiting and high dollar price tags.

Within the greater Mâconnais, the Macon Villages wines are those within a few defined and optimally situated villages, either noted by the name Mâcon-Villages or as Mâcon followed by the name of the particular village, for example Viré, Lugny, Azé, Bray or Burgy.

Commonly vinified in stainless steel or glass-lined concrete vats, these are mostly intended for consumption within a year or two of the vintage, though a few serious Mâconnais producers have turned their focus to smaller yields and barrel fermentation and maturation. Regardless, you can count on Macon Villages whites to be fresh and fruity with citrus and melon flavors, and aromas of white roses, honeysuckle, lemon-grass or fennel.

This is a great region to explore if you already like California, Australian or Chilean Chardonnay.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
