If Cahors is overturning the codes of great wine, Cosse Maisonneuve is the most spectacular illustration. Going beyond the borders of its appellation, the estate is among the best in France, propelled by the infallible duo of Mathieu Cosse and Catherine Maisonneuve. Masters of their subject, they give us the pleasure of savouring some of the most complete and sincere wines of Cahors. Magnificently matured, intense and elegant, they upset the hierarchies and put Cahors back in the running for the stars.
Domaine Cosse Maisonneuve. Les Laquets. Cahors. 2012. 17/20.
A highlight in the vintage by its texture, density without heaviness and its freshness despite very ripe grapes. Biodynamics fulfils its contract.
