Frederic Cossard - 2018 'Bigotes' Bourgogne
Frederic Cossard produces some of the best wines in all of Burgundy. Full stop. Brimming with an infectious joie de vivre, this legendary producer manages to make thrilling, vibrant Burgundies in a region where oak and sulphur tend to dominate. From the outselt, he has worked with organic fruit, adds no chemicals whatsoever (including zero sulphur), and his fermentations are long and slow. Fred handles his grapes and crafts his wines using some of the skills he learned working with raw milk! These are show-stopping vins of vitality, without artifice.
His 2018 'Bigotes' is 100% Chardonnay from forty year-old vines planted over clay and limestone near the village of Puligny. This wine transcends the genre, with pristine stone fruits, crisp citrus, cleansing salinity and an everlasting, diamond-cut finish. Impeccably balanced. Unfined/unfiltered.
