User Reviews for Sancerre Chavignol Culs de Beaujeu F. Cotat

Winemaker's Notes:

"Francois Cotat elected to leave his 2010 Sancerre Les Culs de Beaujeu with 8 grams of residual sugar, as it had already reached 14.5% alcohol: the highest of his classic trio in this vintage. The effect is like a liqueur of Sancerre (an expression I may well have used on some previous occasion, but which can scarcely have been more apt than on this one). Take herbal elixir; add mirabelle and rowan eau de vies, candied citrus rind and almond extract. Yes, it’s heady stuff – in its high-toned aromatic intensity as well as its voluminous, faintly warm palate presence: but that fits this wine’s soothing, enveloping character and its long-lasting concentration of herb, nut, and pit fruit essences. Cotat Sancerre has never shied away from making singular, memorably “atypical” statements and this one is written in bold letters. I suspect it will be worth following for 15 years or more, which counts as “the usual” for an outsized, subtly sweet wine from this estate...92" WA 07/12
