Vineyard: clay & limestone, biodynamically farmed by Baptiste himself. Planted in 2002 by Baptiste’s father Olivier Cousin
Making of: the hand-harvested grapes are macerated as whole bunches for 4 days. Once pressed, the wine spontaneously ferments and ages in neutral oak barrels for 12 months. Unfined, unfiltered, zero SO2 added.
Personality: velvety and fresh! With a wonderful depth of flavors and juicy fruit, this is a really delicious, refreshing, crunchy take on the grape. Don’t hesitate to chill it a bit and enjoy with basically anything.
Baptiste started in 2012 with old vines of Chenin that his father, the cult natural winemaker Oliver Cousin, passed on to him, and Cousin Jr. progressively took over more plots and varieties.
Originally, he made the wines in his father’s / great-grandfather’s cellar in Martigné-Briand, but since 2020 he moved into a refurbished winery space of his own, built into an abandoned historical estate nearby.
The property is located in Boisairault, which in French sounds exactly the same as Bois Zéro – Drink Zero [manipulated wines, zero sulfur], a fitting logo and creed for Baptiste’s no-additions philosophy
The winery’s name “Le Batossay” is a nickname invented by Baptiste’s friends, referring to manga comics.
