Côte Maconnais

Domaine des Gerbeaux

(Solutré-Pouilly)

Located in the village of Solutré, the Drouins have been making wine in Burgundy for over a century and Jean-Michel is producing some of the best and most distinctive wines in the Mâconnais region. Great care is taken over the harvest and vinification: harvesting is entirely by hand using small baskets, no pesticides or herbicides are used and fermentation temperature control is rigorous. These are generous, fruit-laden wines characterised by grapefruit and mineral flavours that can hold their own against much of the finest Côte de Beaune wines. Jean-Michel is obsessive about every aspect of his winemaking. Viticulture is organic in all but name and fermentation temperatures are unusually low to retain as much freshness as possible.

Domaine Corsin

(Davayé-Pouilly)

Jean-Jacques and Gilles Corsin are the 5th generation of the Corsin family to run this 13.6 hectares domaine. I have been buying from this domaine since 1992 and have tasted amazing wines as far back as 1990. Jean-Jacques runs the vineyards and Gilles the cuverie. Gilles Corsin is also a courtier and is reputed to have the finest palate in the Macon.
The Vieilles Vignes cuvee is from very old vines that produce wines with layers of lovely concentration and depth, yet retain brilliant freshness and acidity. The 2015 is lovely - fresh and bright, with hints of green apple, pear, and a creamy roundness nicely supported by balancing acidity. The Pouilly is arguably the finest example in the entire appellation. In blind tastings it regularly receives higher ratings than many comparable wines from Meursault and Puligny. The 2015 is outstanding.

Domaine Guillemot-Michel

(Quintaine-Clessé)

Two oenologists, husband & wife, Marc Guillemot & Pierrette Michel, pursue organic viticulture using bio-dynamic methods. Their 'Quintaine' is a bio-dynamic wine. Their average yield is 38 hectolitres per hectare; the lowest in Macon. This is a chemical free, oak free, hand-crafted wine. It has honeyed, liquid mineral aromas. On the palate, this melon-flavoured, oily-textured, beautifully balanced & mineral-like wine, offers richness & a long, dry finish. A superbly crafted wine of considerable quality.
