Domaine Alain & Raphaël Corcia

Raphael Corcia

The estate previously known as Domaine de la Vieille Fontaine, was taken over at the beginning of 2021 by the Corcia family. Alain Corcia is a successful négociant based in Savigny les Beaune, specialising in the marketing of great Burgundy wines for over 35 years. Raphael, the youngest son, is the key driver for this takeover and is in charge of the work in the vineyard and the vinification. Raphael is bursting onto the scene with the 2021 vintage, showing his skills through a new method of cultivation for these vines; biodynamics.

“This exciting new four-hectare Domaine in Mercurey is the project of Raphaël Corcia; his father Alain is a négociant whose Southern Rhône selections will be familiar to readers of The Wine Advocate. Raphaël, after working with Anne Parent, has started out in the Côte Chalonnaise along ambitious lines: in organic conversion from the start, he's working with cover crops, doing all the canopy management by hand and employing only organic composts. In the winery, some whole bunches are retained and macerations are long. The portfolio is interesting, featuring old vines and a premier cru of considerable potential, Les Crêts, on the calcareous slopes above Les Nauges, which I've often thought must possess considerable potential but which has yet to be much valorized. Given that this is a new estate and that I tasted the wines in the spring when they were still only partially formed, I've been conservative in my ratings, but this project certainly seems to possess considerable potential, and I'd encourage importers to check them out sooner rather than later.” - William Kelley, Wine Advocate
