Federick Cossard has been a name to watch in natural wine circles for a number of years. He established his domaine is 1993, renting a few hectares of vineyards in Saint Romain and Auxey Duresses to get his start. His entry into Burgundy winemaking was from the ground floor, not being part of an established winemaking family. This makes his ascension all the more special given the challenges faced.
Cossard's wine business falls into two strands. His own Domaine de Chassorney, which now comprises 10Ha across a number of villages, and also his work as a négociant giving him access to fruit from various other sites. The latter wines are bottled under the labelling nomenclature of simply, 'Federick Cossard'.
His methods have been organic since he began back in 1993. This focus on the vineyard - scrupulous attention to detail throughout the growing season and site quality - ensure only the best fruit makes it into the wines. This allows very much a hands-off approach in the cellar, with white grapes being pressed straight into barrel where they rest on their lees until bottling, and red fruit spending approximately a month on their skins as whole bunches in open top casks before being pressed into the barrel prior to a similar period of rest on the lees. No lees stirring, just long uninterrupted fermentations - and no use of SO2 at any part of the process.
The site for this Rully Blanc 1er Cru - En Vauvry – may lack wider recognition but but can offer some of the best white wines from the Côte Chalonnaise. The 1er Crus are located on the steepest slopes of Rully, which give the Chardonnay a minerality and aromatic distinction.
Vibrant nose of white flowers and orchard fruits. Lots of mineral presence on the palette. Fresh, elegant Chardonnay that must be tried.

Quick note on Fine Wine purchasing.
When ordering that special bottle of wine it is worth doing a little research before making a purchase. Wine is a living product, which goes through changes and stages of development in the bottle, as well as varying between vintages. If you are considering ordering an older vintage we recommend speaking to a member of staff or using a review site like cellartracker.com to try and get as full a picture as possible of the flavour profile and development of the bottle you are considering.
