Domaine Mathieu Cosme Vouvray Les Promenards 2018


Domaine de Beaumont is located just outside of Noizay, a village fronting the Loire in the far southeastern corner of Vouvray. Founded in 1930, it is currently headed by the fifth generation of the Cosme family, Mathieu. After a degree in enology and an étage of Domaine Huet, Mathieu has made a name for himself by making powerful, dry, and precise cuvées of Chenin Blanc from 13 hectares of vineyards with ideal southern and southeastern exposure.

The Domaine has been certified organic since the 2014 vintage, and Mathieu has plowed the soils by horse since 2005 when he finished his étage at Huet and returned to run his family’s estate. 

Situated on the gently rolling hills of the deuxième côte, Les Promenards comes from vines planted by Mathieu’s grandfather. Mineral and taught, Les Promenards is fermented by indigenous yeasts in 400L French oak barrels, then aged in stainless steel tanks for 8 months before bottling.

Powerful aromas of spices, greens, and pure fruit – grapefruit and citrus. The pleasing finish has just a touch of savory notes.
