We're talking to you about his Winery
|Volnay, Pommard, Hautes Côtes-de-Beaune, red Burgundy and white Burgundy... we make you dream? Discover the work of Frederic Cossard. Passionate about vines and wine since childhood, he took his first steps with a grandfather who was a wine grower in the commune of Nolay, in the Côte-d'Or region. Years later, he became a broker in great Burgundy (from Chablis to Beaujolais) for 10 years. He took the opportunity to taste a multitude of wines, discusses with the winemakers the technique, the work in the vineyard, the vinification and the maturing. And quite naturally, has the ambition to become one of them. Not convinced by the global offer in Burgundy, wines that they find for the majority without souls and too much make-up, he sets himself the idea of taking over a few vines and working as naturally as possible. Good (and good) took some from him. An opportunity to reclaim a few plots in 1995, and he jumped at the chance. So we also have to find a banker who is sufficiently "committed" to dare to lend money to a boy who is not "son of winemaker" . That will be the case.||Chassorney's Winery was launched on January 15, 1996. And to begin with, Frédéric worked on the AOC Saint-Romain red (1.1570 ha), Saint-Romain white (0.6340 ha), Auxey-Duresses red and white (0.40 ha), Bourgogne Hautes Côtes-de-Nuits (0.32 ha, abandoned 3 years later) and Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Clos des Argillières (0.69 ha). In 2006, Winery takes a new turn. An old dream was finally possible: to vinify great whites in trade while controlling the supply of grapes (strict specifications with partner winegrowers). Wines from Savigny-lès-Beaune and another Nuits Saint-Georges entered the catalogue of maison. In 2010, the winemaker from whom Frédéric has been buying the grapes of Pommard and Volnay for 5 years decided to cease its activity. A godsend for Môssieur Cossard, who takes the terroirs under his wing! Chassornay then doubled its surface area, from 5 to 10 hectares. There you have it, you know everything. All you have to do now is taste it!|
