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 2022 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.
