(The following is from the importer materials)
The grapes we bought were from a friend of Fred's in Coeur du Rhone.
Skin Contact is a special cuvée that Fred has used in his own brewing process to bring out the full flavor of 100% grapes that is not masked by the aroma coming from the barrel.
The wine name is Le Fred Zizi, a backward reading of the aperitif that was popular before World War II, and is a play on Fred's nickname, Fredo.

Frederic Cossard

The current owner, Frédéric Cossard, launched Domaine de Chassolnay in 1996.
Frederic grew up in a family of dairy farmers with no connection to wine at the time, and under the influence of his strict father, he studied milk fermentation at ENIL (National School of Dairy Industry) in order to take over the family business. After graduating from school, he was forced to travel to the United States on his father's orders to train at a dairy company near Boston for two years, but he faded out after three weeks. After that, he decided not to take over the family business, so he left his father's care and jumped straight into the world of wine, which he had always been interested in. At the age of 23, he studied wine at the winemaking schools of Beaune and Savoie and started working for Cloutier with minimal investment. Frédéric Cossard With no prior knowledge, he started knocking on the doors of Burgundy with just paper, pencil, phone, and car, and gradually gained the trust of his customers by persistently negotiating wine deals. Along the way, he worked as a cloutier for 10 years, working as a wine blender at a négociant in Nuits-Saint-Georges. During that time, he said, ``I drank all the wine in Burgundy,'' and decided to start a domaine in order to create his own ideal wine. In 1996, he launched his long-awaited domaine with his mother-in-law (at the time). In 2005, they built a new winery, and the following year they started Négociant Frédéric Cossard, which continues to this day.
