It produces epic and soaring Sancerres that age brilliantly.
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.
In the past, I've focused on Grande Côte from François Cotat and Boulay. Today, I turn my attention to Pascal Cotat's Grande Côte.
Pascal is François' cousin. 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, especially in 2018.
The 2018 Grande Côte boasts an incredible complexity and architecture. The way that it works at such a large scale with tense spine and lots of finesse is truly impressive. Expect some serious saline minerality and that chalky, tactile texture that defines both Cotats' wines.
I'm glad that I can offer this at very sharp pricing. I hope that the 3-pack deal will encourage you to stash a couple of bottles in your cellar. This has all the markings of a bottle that will age beautifully.
