Francois Cotat Sancerre Rose 2022

Where - Loire Valley, France
What - Sauvignon Blanc
Body - Medium
Style - Contemplate

The wines of Francois Cotat are Sauvignon Blanc but as you know it. With an intensity, complexity and mineral drive (thanks to it's Kimmeridgian soils and incredibly low yields) that's more akin to Grand Cru Chablis, the Cotat family have been producing wines here since the 1940s. 

Cotat's rosé is cult and one of a very small group that benefit from (and in some ways demand) aging. Just like Cotat's whites, with age, it's the terroir that comes to dominate the rosé with a singular minerality. There may be a silky texture and gentle floral notes, but it's the stony minerality that defines old Cotat rosé. Sadly, they're as rare as they are beautiful - Importer Notes
