J'aimerai bien savoir de quoi ils se sont affranchis....pas du soufre en tout cas, puisque la plupart des vignerons présents ce jour la en utilisent...
From what are they freedmen?...not from sulfits at least...as most of these winemakers use some...


Today for the first time I tasted the wines of Mathieu Coste. Your comment about MC2 prompts this reply -- you and I have very different tastes! 2012 MC2 truly smells of the barnyard after a heavy rain. The wine is extremely volatile, which is not the same as kaleidoscopic, more like a spinning top without a centerweight. A wine where beer, ale, mead, cider, and wine mash it up. Almost childish. Which is weird because Coste's 2010 Les Tetes de Chats is composed, tactile, full of fresh fruit, a satisfying drink on its own or with many styles of food. Since sulfur was used here, do you know the rationale for the different techniques? The third wine tasted was 2008 Biau in which a very low sulfur treatment was made. The vintage is a favorite of mine for its perfect balance in almost all grape varieties and Chats expounds on this aspect, particularly on the palate. Aromas are a bit shaky. Coste needs to heed Arianna Occhipinti's mea culpa or Didier's Dageuneu's admission that many of his vintages didn't last well in bottle. Or just taste his own wine with an eye to the future. The man makes exciting wine. Give us a chance to taste it.
