Freddie does the Rhône - one of his négociant wines that poses some incredible bang for buck at a nicely accessible price point for this superstar grower! Grenache from twenty year old vines planted over clay and limestone in Vaison-la-Romaine, Vaucluse. The grapes were fermented as whole bunches for a fortnight, before being pressed off to vat for nine months. An elegant take on the grape that offers black fruits and minerals, a silky texture and plenty of Southern charm.

Frederic Cossard is a larger than life character. He is a man with an infectious joie de vivre, with a real passion for life and a love of wine that runs deep. Fred wasn’t born into a family of vignerons and so had to start from scratch, no mean feat in Burgundy. 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 (and beyond). These wines are bottled eponymously, as ‘Frederic Cossard’.
