Mathieu Coste previously worked in Burgundy, making wine for others before he decided to create his own domaine in 2008. He settled in Côteaux du Giennois, which is the extreme eastern part of Loire Valley, as close to Burgundy as you can get. Mathieu, in addition to being a wine maker, is a professor of oenology. It's been relayed to me that although he is a professor, someone who you'd assume perspective on wine might be to emphasize exactitude and precision, that he has a very natural and easy attitude. That he utilizes and encourages instinct more than his knowledge and technical skill. He has about 5.5 hectares of vines, mostly planted with Gamay and Pinot Noir, but has a little bit of Sauvignon Blanc thrown in there, with which he makes a singular white/skin contact cuvee.  

This cuvee is extremely interesting. It has distinct tannic structure that feels very much akin to red wine. It's quite herbal, with light melon-y notes and dried orange peel.
