about coste motte
The grapes for this Sauvignon Blanc are grown in the Duras region located in the Southwest of France. There is a long history of winemaking in the region where the Coste Motte vineyards are located – vines were first cultivated in Roman times.
The vineyard sits on a limestone plateau covered by layers of gravelly and sandy loess soils, which provide a well-drained environment for the vines. The average vine age is 25 years. The conditions are excellent for the vineyards, with a strong influence from the Atlantic Ocean bringing long, sunny summers, tempered by cooling sea breezes. Coste Motte vineyards are operated under the AgriConfiance, an organization that supports sustainable agriculture.
Sébstien Baptiste, winemaker, created this elegant white wine that "... breathes the joy of living and the passion of their winemakers." The experiences and ability to share friendly moments over their wines is what drives the vineyard to produce great wines that reflect their philosophy and region.
