Sancerre 'Caillottes' Dme. Francois Cotat Chavignol 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Formely known as 'Jeunes Vignes', the Chavignol plot has now grown up<br/>sufficiently to earn the title 'Caillottes' after its limestone strewn soil.<br/>Compared to the leaner 2007s, one's immediately dazzled by the amount of<br/>sunshine in the glass, of its beguiling 'souplesse' & relative<br/>approachability. Francois reflected on the vintage as one where he had 'jamais<br/>vu aussi belle que 2008'. The perfect 'everyday' Cotat Sancerre while waiting<br/>for the single crus to come round. An awesome aperitif along with some senior<br/>eats. <br/>(David Berry Green, BBR Buyer)
