- Loire, Frankrike
- Mathieu Coste
- Mathieu Coste was previous working in Burgundy, making wine for others before he created his own domaine in 2008. Côteaux du Giennois – this extreme east part of Loire, as close to Burgundy you can get in this long stretched wine region of Loire, was suited for the style of wines he wanted to make. He’s always been in to organic farming and minimal intervention winemaking and has today 5,5 hectares where 4,7 hectares is planted with Pinot Noir and Gamay, the rest is Sauvignon Blanc. He makes wines in a way that’s rarely seen these days, red wines with structure and backbone that is aged for a long time until they are mature. Wines that makes you think of history.
The whites are concentrated but still elegant with lots of yellow fruit, acidity and minerality.
The reds are elegant, mature and complex.
