Mathieu Coste's Les Têtes de Chats translates to "The Cats Heads" due to the shape of the stones in the vineyards bearing resemblance to a cat's head. The stoney perfume of the vineyard translates to the wine, hence the name of the cuvée and its amazing label. On the nose, the wine displays dried rose petal, rosehips, and crushed ripe-red cherries. This mixes with brushed leather, warm stones, and earth to make a truly beautiful natural wine. The palate showcases delicate acidity and bright red fruit which plays with savory hints of soy. Pair this rebellious Pinot with chicken skewers with peanut sauce, green peppercorn terrine, steak frites, and grilled wild game.
