Cotat Monts Damnes 2016
Chavignol is the true heart of Sancerre, and the Mont Damnees is arguably its finest vineyard, with incredibly mineral subsoil called Kimmeridgian Marl that gives wonderful structure to the wines. 2009 was a very warm rich vintage, so the minerality gives a refreshing quality to the rich, sweetness of the fruit.
E-Robert Parker: “Honeysuckle, narcissus, honeydew melon, white peach, and pineapple on the nose of Francois Cotat’s 2009 Sancerre Les Monts Damnes all gain reinforcement from a hint of sweetness . The finish here is impressively soothing and long. This is just about as opulent as Sancerre can get, even allowing for the cuvees speciales that the Cotat family have bottled over the years.”
