2019 Domaine de Chassorney Saint-Romain Blanc Combe Bazin – Qvevris

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. These are truly captivating and rare natural Burgundies. They are some of the hardest wines to find in France and are, in many ways, the ultimate insider wines. 

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.

From importer Andrew Guard:
"The Saint-Romain Blanc 'Combe Bazin' is from a single vineyard planted high on the steep slopes of Saint-Romain. This vineyard is in a cool side gully and this year it's wine is very beautiful - sensual to smell, sumptuous to taste and with it's own musical charm. This is superb wine, very pure and bright with excellent concentration and clarity. Wines like this are basically why I like wine."
It's worth noting this is the special qvevri-aged bottling that is even more expressive and rare than the regular cuvée.
