About Domaine Cosse Maisonneuve
Matthieu Cosse and Catherine Maisonneuve created Domaine Cosse Maisonneuve in 1999. Both winemakers and oenologists, they took over a 5 hectare estate in Prayssac, near Cahors, and planted it with 40-year-old Malbec (or “cot”) vines. Everything they do in the vineyard is done with the aim of attaining balanced soils which produce the best ripening conditions for the grapes in order to make harmonious, aromatically complex and precise wines. They consider that wine is the ambassador of a terroir, and a winemaker is the interpreter, thus to obtain perfect grapes that will clearly express the qualities of the Cahors terroir, everything in the vineyard must be natural.
