Abstemes S’Abstenir Domaine Cosse Maisonneuve, biodynamic, 100% Gamay from Cahors! Full bodied Gamay but very elegant and delicious. Mattieu Cosse likes to experiment. He uses very varied terroir and saw the opportunity to plant different grapes unfamiliar to his region on the terroir that best suits them. He planted Cabernet Franc and also Gamay on Calcareous Gravels. The resulting wine is absolutely delicious. Abstemes S’Absteni is from low yielding vines. The natural ferments in concrete and ageing in barrels help to contribute the style, smooth texture and minerality to the wine.
