Domaine de Chassorney

Volnay 1er Cru "Les Lurets" - 2018 - Frédéric Cossard

Burgundy

COSSARD Frédéric

100% Pinot noir from a magnificent parcel around 40 years old. The climat Les Lurets: a burial site was discovered under this parcel in the 18thcentury, containing a skeleton wearing a strange golden helmet… something to speculate about over a glass! Sensible farming, and whole-bunch, natural vinifications... Maturation 10 months in barrels, 1/3 new oak. Zero sulphur.
Frédéric Cossard and his partner Laure founded their estate in 2006, while also beginning to buy grapes from multiple historic appellations: Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet, Chassagne-Montrachet, Pommard, Nuits-Saint-Georges, Chambolle-Musigny, Vosne-Romanée, and even the Jura and Beaujolais. Their story began 10 years earlier, as Fred and Laure are also the names behind Domaine de Chassorney, which was born in 1996. This son of farmers fulfilled his dream of becoming a vigneron beginning with parcels in Saint-Romain and Auxey-Duresses. The estate grew bit by bit, and today Fred cultivates 10 ha of vines. And whether they are in Pommard, Volnay or Hautes-Côtes-de-Beaune, his vines are all worked biodynamically, with the help of Philippe Secques, who mixes homeopathic vine treatments for him, and horse ploughs between the vines rows. In the winery: indigenous yeasts, cuvées without sulphur... The man even hands out advice to the likes of Eric Pfifflering or Bruno Duchêne. A reference in Burgundy!
