Sommelier's Notes

Domaine Sophie Cinier is small, just 2.33 hectares. All vineyards are around Fuissé, which is a 15-minute drive from Mâcon. 

Sophie’s family estate produced its first wines in 2000, but her family on her mother’s side of the family has lived in Fuissé and been involved in wine production since at least the time of her grandfather. The vines were planted in 1941 and came under Sophie’s control in 1998.

There is a lovely range of different styles from this family estate. The vineyard area has recently expanded to a new vineyard of 1.2 hectares in Igé, 10 miles north of her home in Fuissé. It’s planted with a hectare of Chardonnay for two new wines, a Bourgogne Blanc and a Mâcon Villages Le Clos, and 0.2 ha is planted with Pinot Noir. Unlike the large parts of the Mâconnais where machine harvesting is the norm, Sophie’s vineyard work is entirely manual.

In the Mâconnais four of the five village appellations are located around Mâcon. 

Sophie makes this wine from a tiny 0.4 Hectare single vineyard with astounding attention to detail. The result is a beautiful chardonnay, unoaked and focussed on pristine fruit - think citrus, green apple and minerals. A lovely white Burgundy.

Fresh, elegant dry white wine from a tiny domain in the south of Burgundy. The 3.5 hectares of vineyards are located in and around the municipality of Fuisse. The passionate winemaker/oenologist Sophie Cinier makes beautiful, flawless Chardonnay's.
