Frederic 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. 

From a new collaboration with Damien Coquelet, Les en Hauts. Gamay from a hundred year old parcel, planted over granite some four hundred metres above sea level on the steep slopes of Chiroubles. Fermented as whole bunches for several weeks, the wine spent nine months resting in concrete eggs. The parcel’s elevation has lent a luminous character to the fruit even in this warmest of vintages. A wine of real elegance and inimitable charm.
