Created in 1999, the Domaine Cosse Maisonneuve is the result of the association of two talented oenologists and winemakers: Matthieu Cosse and Catherine Maisonneuve. Both took over a 5 hectares estate in Prayssac near Cahors which was planted with old vines of Malbec (also known under the name of cot) and started making wines, well determined to produce genuine wines. Their very first vintage was the cuvées Les Laquets but Matthieu and Catherine soon extended the range of their wines. Several years later, the talented duo still operate together and has enlarged the estate to 15 hectares of vineyards with other grape varieties such as Merlot, Gamay and Cabernet Franc. The soils of the domaine are variously composed of: clay, limestone, calcareous gravels or siderolithic tertiary. Some plots are settled on the terraces overhanging the Lot river. Everything is natural and biodyamic in the vineyards, allowing to obtain perfect grapes that will translate perfectly the qualities of the Cahors terroir. Passionate and perfectionnist, Matthieu and Catherine are definitely the future of the Cahors appellation with wines that express the antithesis of the rustic style wines of the region. The winemaking is precise and accurate like a Swiss watchmaker, giving us the pleasure and the chance to taste elegant, smooth and aerial wines that truly express the terroir and that have an incredible ageing potential. For Matthieu, a wine should have depth and minerality to ensure honesty and authenticity Shipping Shipping: Freight - RareWines is able to deliver to the majority of Australian suburbs using various courier companies as well as Australia Post.
