Domaine Dominique Cornin is the story of two men – Dominique and his son Romain – and their horse. 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 Mâconnais. Les Chevrières is the plot Dominique’s grandfather – Romain’s great-grandfather - planted more than 50 years ago, and the 100-year-old parcel in Les Serreuxdières reaches even deeper into the Cornins’ roots in Mâcon. The credo at the Domaine is as little intervention as possible. In the vineyard the vines have been worked manually since 1998, with all chemicals proscribed since then; biodynamic farming has been practised for the whole domaine since 2003. In the winery, chemicals are similarly proscribed, fermentation begins naturally with indigenous yeasts and all the wines are fermented in stainless-steel tanks, and the single-vineyard wines are aged in used oak barrels.
