Maison Gilles Noblet, Macon Fuisse
Brand Domaine De La Collonge
Gilles Noblet of Domaine de la Collonge continues to fashion some of the Macon’s finest and most enjoyable white wines from several renowned appellations. The Macon is the area of southern Burgundy that is known for its elegant Chardonnay wines. Noblet’s domaine (known both as Domaine Gilles Noblet and Domaine de la Collonge) is a small family owned and run estate of only 22 acres. Gilles is the fourth generation member of his family to make wine at this prized property. For the record, Gilles’ wife, also, comes from a traditional winemaking family, so wine and winemaking run deep in the heart and soul of this couple as well as in the terroir of Noblet’s well-tended vineyards.
The name Domaine de la Collonge derives from the sector or area (known as an aire) of the Fuissé commune that is called Collonge. Most of Gilles Noblet’s estate is spread along the hills of la Collonge, which yield on average only a little more than six thousand cases of Pouilly-Fuissé each year and smaller quantities of exceptional Macon-Fuissé, Pouilly-Loché, and St. Véran – all elegant Macon wines from 100% Chardonnay vines.
