SKU: B272/FLRegular price $214.95
Frederic Cossard developed a truly unique recipe. Homeopathic principles inform his farming. Only very old vines (50/70+ years old) in prime plots scattered around burgundy are the source for his raw materials. Only the most pristine fruit makes it to their cellars tucked away amongst the limestone cliffs of Saint-Romain. Whole bunch fermentation à la Leroy/Prieure Roch/Pacalet is a key feature in his winemaking. Very fine compounds, with alluring floral aromas and vibrant, crunchy fruit are extracted and placed at the core of Cossard’s wines. Fermentation and elevage varies wildly, depending on the specific characteristics of each vineyard. Wood of various sizes and age, open tanks, cement eggs, even Georgian Qvevries (Clay Amphoras) are used in the cellar. The aim is to achieve perfect micro-oxygenation in the wines, binding the phenolics into a compact, age-worthy structure, while retaining early approachability.
