About the maker
Le Batossay (Baptise Cousin) is tended to by son of esteemed vigneron, Oliver Cousin, who has passed on most of the vineyard management and winemaking, but still mentors him through his early years to continue the lineage of incredible Loire wines.
The spirit of Oliver remains throughout the vineyard, working the vines with horses and biodynamic preparations, with no added sulphur or any other additives ever coming in contact with the wine. The wines possess elements of wilderness, natural purity not only unique to their parcel, but also represent a step up in the evolution of precisely made natural wines. The varieties that Baptiste tends to are Gamay, Grolleau, Chenin Blanc and Pineau d’aunis.See the Le Batossay collection here
