Frederic Cossard, Super Pink 2019
Soooo excited for this one! A beautiful rosé from the master Frederic Cossard made of Cinsault from a parcel of twenty-year-old vines planted over clay and limestone in Vaison-la-Romaine, Vaucluse. A direct press and short élevage in steel make for a pale, aromatic wine with delicate notes of red fruits, flowers, and orange. Limited allocation
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. These wines are bottled eponymously, as ‘Frederic Cossard’.
