Loire Valley, France
Equal blend of Pinot Noir & Gamay
A medium-bodied red with so much going on. Notes of red berries, pepper, baking spices with excellent acidity and texture.
Domaine Mathieu Coste consists of 5.5 hectares of vines planted on a single hillside facing south in the town of Saint-Père. The field has been farmed organic since 1982. His vineyards are planted predominantly to Gamay and Pinot Noir. His vines are head-pruned, to decrease production. He plows the weeds under several times a year to nourish the vines and no outside source of fertilizer is needed.
Mathieu is a pioneer for his region. His inspiration from Burgundy shows as his wines have structure and seriousness, and can age incredibly long.
