La Dive Bouteille 2013 – a new discovery in Vouvray: Mathieu Cosme

Château de Brézé: La Dive tasting in cellars underneath the château

Matthieu Cosme: Vouvray

At La Dive Bouteille tasting at Château de Brézé on the Sunday (3rd) before the start of the Salon des Vins de Loire I was impressed with the Vouvrays from Mathieu Cosme (Domaine de Beaumont) – a new discovery for me. He has 13 ha and started in 2005. I liked the purity of his wines. 

This is a brief post as I'm heading off to Umbria today for the Wine Lovers anniversary, where we will doubtless elect a new Wine Lovers pope!
