The Crown Jewel:
2019 Pascal Cotat Sancerre La Grande Côte

Posted by Ian McFadden

Among the vineyards of Sancerre, La Grande Côte is king.

Grande Côte is one of the grandest, most profound, and longest-lived Sancerres on earth.

La Grande Côte is a steep vineyard that sits on hard Kimmeridgian limestone, the same vein that runs through Chablis. As one might expect, the grapes grown here produce wines of energy, precision, and Chablis-like minerality.

The Cotat cousins are masters of the site. Compared to François, Pascal has a lower profile. The two cousins produce very similar wines. Pascal's wines tend to be a little deeper and more powerful than François. Aided by 50-year-old vines, Pascal's style turns out a stunning Grande Côte.

Pascal Cotat's 2019 La Grande Côte is epic. There's a soaring and layered complexity that's backed by serious architecture. You get a vibrant core of gripping chalkiness and saline minerality. 

An aged bottle of Cotat's Grande Côte is unmatched in depth, elegance, and stony complexity. I suggest that you stock up on this to bury in the cellar. I bet it will be dazzling in a decade.
