The 2015 Sancerre Les Mont Damnés is the pure essence of its calcareous terroir. The nose is beautiful in its purity of flavors, a unique mix of lemon scent, herbs, flowers and crushed stones. Full-bodied, very dense and intense on the palate, this is a very complex and elegant wine. It has restful fruit flavors in the infinite aftertaste. The wine is tight and full of potential, a great and unique Sancerre.
Cotat produces old-style Sancerre, quite different from the norm found today: "Rich, full flavored, thick, and sometimes not bone dry. They are some of the finest Sauvignon Blancs I have ever put to my lips." - Robert Parker
Cotat Sancerre is simply some of the most singular Sauvignon Blanc in the world. Like his cousin François, Pascal Cotat (with his winery in Sancerre) crafts uncanny wines that defy both time and de nition. These are wines that can age for decades effortlessly, and that marry a plush richness with a laser-like cut and energy. Cotat as a rule harvests by hand and very late, as pushing ripeness to the extreme is one element that gives his wines their weighty texture and complexity. - Wine Advocate -
