François Cotat, Sancerre La Grande Côte Chavignol 2010

Imported by North Berkeley Wine, Berkeley CA.

White gold.  Dense as ancient trees and if you picked the thickest trunk of the lot, well, that would be the François Cotat.   Pears and reggiano, staggeringly concentrated yet perfectly dry.  Honey and herbal elixir where the palpable impression of residual sugar comes from the wine’s massive dry extract levels.  Impressive, if still inscrutable.  From 2020.
