From the village of Charnay in the Mâconnais, this well-made wine is taken from Cordier’s top vineyard parcels. Implementing battonage and 9 months’ ageing on lees before bottling, Cordier has again excelled in making quality wine from a less fashionable appellation. Lime, pineapple and lemon harmonise with a slight hint of nuttiness on the palate. Refreshing, with some complexity, a balanced acidity leaves the mouth revitalised afterwards. Roast poultry dishes work really well with this style of wine, but also refreshing and crisp by itself as a pre-dinner drink.
