Feel Good, Frédéric Cossard 2020
Domaine de Chassorney was born in 1996 with a few hectares of vines rented in Saint Romain and Auxey Duresses and now comprises ten hectares of vines across several villages. He also acts as a négociant, which gives him access to fruit from some of the greatest vineyards in Burgundy. These wines are bottled eponymously, as ‘Frédéric Cossard’.
The Cossards have worked organically from the outset and now focus on homeopathic treatments and remedies tailored to the needs of each site. Whites are pressed directly straight to barrel, where they rest on lees until bottling. Reds spend around a month on their skins as whole bunches in open top casks, before being pressed off to barrel, also resting on their lees until bottling. It sounds simple, but the attention to detail in the cellar is second to none and Fred produces Burgundy of rare liveliness, purity and detail.
From a parcel planted with fifty year old vines over marl in Sainte-Agnès, this is a direct press of Savagnin vinified in the Burgundian or ‘ouillé’ style and aged in concrete eggs for a year. This hums with the grape’s characteristic energy, offering plenty of pithy citrus and minerals and making for something truly electric.
