Pinot Noir

Burgundy, France

Fred Cossard is a natural wine guy who started his domaine in 1996, and now farms 7 hectares (all rented), making his wine in Saint-Romain. He began his career in the milk trade and then worked for a while as a wine merchant before deciding to switch to making the stuff. He began with a rented facility in Saint Romain, then bought a house with a cellar in the village in 1998, where he made his wines until he moved to the current winery, also in the village. Vinification is without any sulfur dioxide at all. Cossard uses a long maceration of five to six weeks, and malolactic fermentation occurs while the wine is still on the skins. The barrels he uses are cleaned by ozone – not sulfur dioxide. (Wine Anorak)

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.
