Cotat Cuvee Paul Sancerre 2013
Francois Cotat's domaine is based in one of the greatest of all the Sancerre villages, Chavignol, where he creates very unusual wines. Late picked, then barrel fermented using indigenous yeasts, these are a unique expression of Sancerre, and his best wines can age for decades. Named after François's father, Cuvée Paul is a very rare wine made from the richest barrels of his top three vineyrads and set aside as having the greatest potential for ageing. It is just wonderful - super rich with passion fruit flavours but with a chalky edge too.
