François Cotat Sancerre La Grande Côte 2018

François Cotat's Sancerre La Grande Côte  vineyard is perched on a steep hillside in the village of Amigny, facing fully south. Here soils are almost exclusively chalk, the same vein that runs through Chablis, and is where most of the appellation’s top vineyards are found. Racked and bottled according to the lunar calendar then bottled by hand, unfined and unfiltered. The nose offers some peach and a touch of signature fennel, and while the entry is initially rich, showing its 3g/l sugar, there is real mineral depth and freshness to the mid-palate and a long, dry and chewy finish. A notable success in 2018. Drink 2020-2028.
