Frédéric Cossard, a charismatic and passionate individual, embarked on a remarkable winemaking journey. Born outside a family of vignerons, he started from scratch in Burgundy. Establishing Domaine de Chassorney in 1996, he initially rented a few hectares of vines in Saint-Romain and Auxey-Duresses. The domaine has since grown to encompass ten hectares across several villages. Additionally, Frédéric and his wife Laure operate as négociants, providing them access to grapes from some of Burgundy's finest vineyards, bottled under the eponymous label 'Frédéric Cossard.'

Since its inception, the Cossards have practiced organic farming, employing homeopathic treatments tailored to each vineyard's needs. They guide growers in caring for the vines when purchasing fruit, ensuring work aligns with their high standards. This meticulous approach guarantees that only pristine fruit finds its way to their cellars in the hills of Saint-Romain.

In recent years, Frédéric Cossard has challenged conventional winemaking by avoiding oak barrels in favor of concrete eggs, earthenware jars, and Georgian qvevris. Whites are pressed directly, while reds undergo whole-bunch fermentation before aging in these vessels. The result is Burgundy wines marked by rare liveliness, purity, and intricate detail.

This Vin de France is a declassified Beaujolais-Villages featuring Gamay from various parcels around Villié-Morgon. The grapes undergo whole-bunch fermentation for two weeks before a brief rest in concrete eggs. With a beautiful pale hue, the wine captivates with soaring notes of raspberry and stones. The palate offers a delightful blood-orange bitterness, delivering ample refreshment and encapsulating everything beloved about Beaujolais.
