Christophe Cordier is a perfectionist, deciding when to harvest by taste alone, then maturing his wine in barrels made from the oak of a single forest, and bottling it without filtration by gravity alone. Don¿t miss his luscious 2011 Saint Véran.
Christophe Cordier's Clos à la Côte was once described by Robert Parker as 'the finest Saint Véran I have ever tasted', and he has rated several vintages '90 points'. We expect nothing less from the creamy, mouthwatering 2013. Saint Véran lies in the Mâconnais in southern Burgundy and was always considered second best to 'posher' Meursault, Puligny Montrachet and so on from further north. In the 1990s that changed as young ambitious challengers stepped up to the plate with remarkably fine, complex wines fermented and aged in new oak. This generation includes Christophe Cordier, called a 'miracle worker' by Wine Spectator. With its mineral complexity, ripe apricot fruit and freshness, this white is spot on with creamy white meat dishes.
