About the maker

Located in Vouvray, Mathieu Cosme is now the 5th generation at the family estate in Noizay.

Certified organic and using biodynamic preparations on the 11 hectares of vines, Mathieu plows the land by horse and harvest is done by hand. Fermentation occurs “naturally”, with indigenous yeasts only. The soil is composed primarily of clay and limestone, which translates perfectly though the wine as pretty, caramel, honeydew and fresh whites.
