Tasting wine with brothers Giles and Jean-Jacques Corsin is a lesson in Chardonnay. They craft white Burgundy with such cut and incredible finesse yet they never lose the generous fruit that has made the Macon one of the world’s best places for Chardonnay.
Any time I’m lucky enough to be in Burgundy in late March, I head directly to chez Corsin. March is the best month to visit with the Corsin brothers, as this is when they taste from each of their 28 tanks of Saint Véran and Pouilly Fuissé, deciding at that point which wines will go into barrel, which will stay in tank and which will go directly into bottle. It was the very best day of the year to learn from two masters what it takes to make brilliant white Burgundy.
I’m telling you, this is one of the greatest treasures of Burgundy and given its price, one of the greatest bangs of your buck that you’ll ever find.
