External Reviews for Sancerre Monts Dames Pascal Cotat
From 1947 until the early 1990s, the Cotat family made one cuvee of each wine, whether under the Francis Cotat label or the Paul Cotat label. Same wine, two labels. The French government then interceded, deciding it illegal for two “independent growers” to combine their production to make single cuvees of a wine in a shared cellar. Brothers Francis and Paul decided to retire and turn their vineyards over to their sons, Pascal (son of Francis) and Francois (son of Paul). Pascal and Francois separated their production in order to avoid the same problems their fathers had experienced. Francois continues to operate in the family cellar while Pascal has recently built new cellars. Today the cousins produce their wines in separate cellars, but each still practices the same traditional winemaking techniques mastered by their fathers.
Pascal Cotat makes his Sancerre the old fashioned way- and the results are unparalleled. Of course if doesn't hurt that his vines are some of the oldest in the area. The wines are rich, dense, and mouthfilling with none of the lean character normally associated with appellation.
