Sancerre Chavignol Culs de Beaujeu F. Cotat 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

" Smoky and faintly bitter hickory and hazelnut ally themselves to a bouquet garni-like herbal melange, with celery salt and nut oils serving for saliva inducement in a lingering finish. Full, gentle, and polished, as well as fascinatingly flavorful, this is nonetheless notably for its absence of pronounced fruit character and its relatively modest sense of ripeness by estate standards (not to mention given 14% natural alcohol). It will be interesting to follow this for a few years and it should prove interestingly useful but I won’t attempt to prognosticate and am slightly skeptical that it would prove a long-keeper in Cotat-typical fashion. Cotat thinks it’s going through a temporarily closed state..." WA 0712
