Frédéric Cossard Gevrey-Chambertin ‘Les Genevrières’
Grapes: Pinot Noir
Frédéric Cossard 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.
Pinot Noir from a parcel of forty year vines from a lieu-dit in Gevrey, that after just a few days fermenting as whole bunches, was pressed off to Georgian qvevris for élevage. This is compact and elegant with the time spent in these vessels adding texture and nuance to its layers of dark fruits and sanguine spice.
