Frédéric Cossard does not come from a family of winemakers. His father worked in the milk trade and the same was for Frédéric. He found himself attracted to the world of wine in a visceral way but before founding the Domaine de Chassorney, he worked as a wine merchant. In 1998 he bought a house in Saint-Romain and 7 hectares with a cellar. Frédéric manages his grapes and makes his wines using some of the practices he has learned from working with raw milk without chemicals of any kind. Its macerations and fermentations are long. It usually carries out five or six weeks of fermentation in wooden vats including malolactic fermentation, while the liquid rests on the lees. a peculiarity is that it sterilizes its barrels using negatively ionized oxygen molecules that eliminate the need to use chemical detergents. After maceration, the wines are assembled and refined without undergoing surgical procedures, filtrations or additions. Wine that can really be defined as a mirror of the year in which the vine grew.
