Without Peer
2021 Pascal Cotat Chavignol Rosé

Posted by Joe Salamone

Every year, we buy as much Pascal Cotat Rosé that we can find.

The reason is simple: It is one of the most age-worthy and compelling rosés in existence.

Sadly, in 2021, there's a tragically small amount of the wine to go around.

Pascal Cotat thrived in 2021. After a series of vintages where growers struggled to tame ripeness, 2021 is a vintage that harkens back to the old days when they had to work hard to achieve ripeness. Cotat's 2021 Rosé has plenty of presence, but also a cool-toned profile that we love. There's serious chalky tension and incredibly pure layered red fruits.

What happens to Pascal Cotat's Rosé in the cellar is without peer. The wine maintains the silkiness of its youth, but over time a stony minerality defines the wine. The terroir comes to dominate the rosé with a singular minerality. This is what makes Cotat's rosé so exciting.

When it comes to Sancerre, Cotat's village of Chavignol is a very special place. Chavignol is absolutely defined by its terroir - Kimmeridgian marl, the same soil as parts of Chablis - that imbues the wine with a tense, saline minerality.

I'm going to wrap this up. Pascal Cotat's Rosé has a huge following and there's no point fanning the fire.
