Domaine de Cornillac is a fourth generation family-owned winery with 9.5 hectares in the town of Saint Vérand in the south of Beaujolais. The soil is a complex mix of clay, schist, sand, and plagiogranite. The vines are on hillsides at 400 meters altitude which brings freshness to the wine. This qualitative terroir gives wines with ample body and length. Schist has pockets of clay, layered with other minerals compressed into thin layers. The clay gives the wines depth and creates a reservoir of water, helping out the vines in dry periods. The plagiogranite layers give minerality, tension, and length to the wine. The plagiogranite is very similar to the blue granite found in the Côte de Brouilly. The decomposed granite gives dry extract to the wines, which translates to how the wine hangs on the palate.
