SOUTHERN BURGUNDY AND THE SUN-DRENCHED
SLOPES OF THE MACON

In Southern Burgundy, the vineyards of the Mâconnais cover almost 6000 hectares, between Tournus, Mâcon and Cluny, in the Saône-et-Loire. Most of the territory – to be precise 3192 hectares, produces Mâcon-Villages. It is no coincidence that the Mâcon wines are the most representative appellation in Burgundy!

Here, you are in the Southern Mâconnais, the chosen land of white wines, the classified growths of Pouilly-Fuissé, Saint-Véran… The Chardonnay grape-variety thrives here on clay-limestone soils enriched by a variety of rocks,on the favourable sites and at altitudes which shape wines with great character and exceptional quality.

It is exactly here on 13.6 hectares of perfectly exposed hillsides facing east, south-east and north-east, at an altitude of between 180 and 280 meters, that the Corsin Domain is firmly enrooted. It is on this sun-drenched terroir, where the soil is respected and the vinifications are conducted in complete respect of traditions and regulations, that the Domain gives birth to white wines appreciated by both amateurs and connoisseurs.
