VDF 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 Clacareous Gravels. The resulting wine is absolutely delicious. Low yields, natural ferments in concrete and ageing in barrels help to contribute the style, smooth texture and minerality to the wine.

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. They work biodynamically and the wines have a genuine sense of place and style that is lost in so many of the wines from the region. Malbec can produce big tannic wines but it also has some subtlety as well. The natural production means the wines are fresh and firm as well being full of dark fruit and spicy scents.
