Philippe Cordonnier has been in contact with the vine since his youth. After a training in Beaune, he learned the trade of winegrower by working in several Burgundy estates. In 2009, he decided to create his own domaine in Corgoloin north of Ladoix-Serrigny between the Côtes de Beaune and Côtes de Nuits area. In 2015, he made his first vintage. Today, the estate extends over 4.50 hectares in 11 different appellations. Philippe manages the estate using
sustainable and integrated vine growing methods, with the goal of using as few chemical products as possible. He is committed to respecting the terroir and the environment.
For once, this winegrower does not come from a winegrower's family! However, Philippe Cordonnier has the experience of an elder and fell into the vineyard in his youth. The wines from Domaine Cordonnier are full of fruits and will please Chardonnay and Pinot Noir lovers.

Regarding the Cote de Nuits-Villages whether red or white, this is the wine King Henri IV had in mind to go with the Sunday chicken he wished every family in France to enjoy. It is as accessible as it is amiable, honest and straightforward in taste.
The red, which has the gleaming crimson highlights of the Pinot grape, veers sometimes towards an intense garnet hue or, when young, a bright cherry. Its aromas run a classic spectrum through cherry, gooseberry and blackcurrant to notes of underbrush, mushroom and spices (cinnamon). This is a big-hearted wine, powerful in the mouth, full and meaty, and its tannins (more conspicuously present in the younger wines) are well smoothed-down.
The white is pale gold in colour or sometimes a little darker. The fragrance is of white flowers (acacia, may) mixed with plum. When older, ripe apple, fig, pear or quince appears, as well as some spicy notes. Lively and clean, it has both energy and elegance while nevertheless remaining direct in its expression and unfailingly likeable.
