Cotat 'Mont Damnes' 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"Light yellow. Smokier and more powerful than the Caillottes on the nose, showing ripe pear and yellow plum. Rich, palate-coating pear and pit fruit flavors are firmed by a bitter lemon zest quality and pack a real punch. The finish repeats the citrussy note and lingers with excellent persistence...92" IWC 03/10 "Musky scents of narcissus emerge from the glass of Francois Cotat 2008 Sancerre Les Monts Damnes, along with mint and Persian melon, setting the stage for a surprisingly soft and rounded palate presentation, at once soothing and refreshing, with subtle interplay of herbal, fungal, and fruit notes in the finish. A discreet sense of chalkiness follows in an impressively long, luscious finish...90" WA 08/10
