A Burgundian diamond in the rough.
The Cossard Sous Roche 2020 is from 50-year-old Pinot Noir vines that grow in one of the steepest and shallowest parts of Saint-Romain. Saint-Romain is an “unsung hero” of an appellation within the prestigious Côte d’Or region in Burgundy, with limestone cliffs that lend a chalky mineral-driven quality to the wine. Loads of dark, brambly fruit interspersed with soft, velvety tannins.
