Francois Cotat la Grande Cote Chavignol Sancerre 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Boasting the oldest vines in the Cotat allotment, somewhere around the 60 year<br/>mark, & the steepest slopes, the fruit of the densely planted vines<br/>(8000/hectare) are shown to best effect on La Grande Cote, located at the back<br/>of the Chavignol amphitheatre on the road out to Amigny. After all the<br/>vineyards tasted in the lead-up, La Grande Cote still amazes us with its rapier<br/>like precision, description defying finesse, & purity. A wine that takes on<br/>notes of reglisse, of licorice, with age, as the 1996 (still 'punchy') &<br/>heavenly 1982 clearly showed. So one to tuck away, forever? <br/>(David Berry Green, BBR Buyer)
