Franck Balthazar

Domain: Franck Balthazar

Founded in 1931 by Franck Balthazar’s grandfather, Casimir Balthazar, this domain saw real change under its current director. Balthazar really admired the elegance of the wines from Pierre-Marie Clape and the natural fruitiness of wines from Thierry Allemand. This inspired him to combine the two elements, and his efforts paid off! Along the way he converted his vineyard to organic in 2010 and he cultivates the land with a hand-plough. In the cellar activities are no less meticulous. Whole-cluster fermentation is kicked off with indigenous yeasts, followed by a long maceration and maturation over 12-18 months in old demi-muids so the wood does not affect the taste of the wine. Sulphite additions are limited. These ingredients are conducive to complex, delicate and well-balanced wines. Behold one of the iconic domains in the Cornas appellation!
