Domaine François Cotat
François Cotat is one of the most unique producers in Sancerre, using minimal intervention in the cellar in order to make wines that are absolutely expressive of his tiny 3-hectare estate at the heart of the prized Chavignol commune which lies on Kimmeridgian clay and Caillotte soils. Year in and year out, he consistently produces some of the finest Sauvignon blancs made anywhere in the world. They are incredibly voluptuous, concentrated Sancerres that demand 5 years or more before they are truly ready. And they last and last...

While there's plenty of tingling acid and herbaceous accent in François Cotat’s wines, these are defined by layers of ripe fruit and muscular structures. Really, no other Sancerres are so opulent, and the power is shocking the first time you taste them. And no other producers can pack Kimmeridgian minerality (which is, while quite stony, almost redolent of oyster shells and shrimp tails) quite as densely as he can
