Cotat La Grande Cote 2019
Francois Cotat’s domaine is based in one of the greatest of all the Sancerre villages, Chavignol, where he creates very unusual wines :Unique expressions of Sancerre and his best wines can age for decades.
The cooler vineyard site (with its older, 40+ year old vines) of “Grande Côte” is the last to be harvested of all Francois’ small parcels; it delivers fruit that is incredibly precise and yet deeply complex in flavor. A very floral nose, with herbs and honeysuckle, reveals a vibrant, energetic mouth of pure minerals and juice inspired by the wine’s “terre blanche,” or chalk soils. Bright, driven and refreshing with a hint of sweetness.
Region: Sancerre, Loire Valley
