Domaine de Chassorney Volnay
Grapes: Pinot Noir
Frederic Cossard of Domaine de Chassorney is a legend of natural winemaking in Burgundy, producing cult wines of renowned energy and finesse in a region not short of incredible wines and winemakers. After starting from scratch, he now has 10 hectares of vines across the region, all farmed organically and vinified without any additions.
This Pinot Noir from the Cossard’s holdings in Volnay spent just a few days on skins, before being pressed off to Georgian qvevris for élevage. The result is a truly unique expression of Volnay, freed from the trappings of oak, it wows with gorgeous red fruits, fine tannins and fistfuls of exotic spice.
