2018 Domaine de Chassorney Bourgogne ‘Bedeau’
Cossard is famous for producing arguably the best natural wines in Burgundy. He has been organic from the outset using homeopathic remedies in place of systemic chemicals and the most diligent winery practices in place of sulphur.
The Domaine de Chassorney wines come from Frédéric Cossard’s own vineyards in and around the village of Saint Romain. They may not always have the most famous appellations on the label but in some ways, they represent the purest expression of his craft.
The Bedeau spends around a month on skins as whole bunches in open top casks. It is then pressed off to barrel where it rests until bottling. It’s a simple enough process, but the attention to detail means that Fred often produces some of the most pure, detailed Pinot Noir in all of Burgundy.
