2017 Mâcon-Fuissé, Les Bruyères, Domaine Dominique Cornin, Burgundy, France
£18.60 £16.17 per bottle
Romain Cornin makes wines with exquisite control. He cites Guillemot-Michel as an inspiration and indeed this famous Domaine makes smart wine, but Cornin’s own creations are, to my mind, more precise and more elegant. Les Bruyères is a biodynamically grown Chardonnay with not an ounce of too much fat or muscle. It is willowy, slender, sassy and sexy but it is more gamine than burlesque in its demeanour. That is not to say it lacks complexity or impact on the palate, because this is a wine that stands shoulder to shoulder with those ten or fifteen pounds more expensive from starrier appellations.
