Purveyors of fine grape juice
2015 Francois Cotat Caillottes sancerre, france
$80

Notes from the importer, Andrew Guard..:
This has superb dimension, unlike any other Sancerre - bright lemon, fresh ginger and white pepper perfumes are lifted and hover over a rocky minerality; the mouth is equally defined yet is made rich with a sensation of silky, full-bodied white fruits. The mouthfeel is chiseled and pure with layers of concentrated flavour. This used to be called "Jeunes Vignes" but François has been vinifing “Caillottes” separately since 2005; the vineyard name refers to a type of soil found in Sancerre—very rocky and chalky. This is a wine that will keep and improve for many years.
