Francois Cotat

The wines of domaine Francois Cotat

Paul and Francis COTAT used to run an estate that has since been divided into two parts for their two respective sons (Francois took over after his father Paul and added to his father's estate his own plots in 1998; and Pascal, Francis' son, created the Domaine Pascal COTAT). Francois was already a Sancerre winegrower then, with his own wine production that he started in 1987. Domaine Pascal COTAT is now well represented in the greatest Sancerre terroirs, thanks to the acquisition of three gorgeous plots (La Grande Coteles Mont Damnes , and le Cul de Beaujeu) even though the vineyard doesn't cover such a big surface (4,2 Ha). The Francois Cotat estate also produces a cuvee called Les Caillottes, made from younger vines. One of the rare rose Sancerre wines to be found is also produced at the estate. Francois COTAT's winery is located in Chavignol, where all the wines are produced in the traditional way.

The harvest is done manually, only from natural (wild) yeast, the wines are not filtered, and bottling is done just before summer. All this has never been changed, and because it's been combined with Francois COTAT's savoir-faire, the estate has then been able to make excellent and greatly aged Sancerre wines with very rich and refined structure. These outstanding bottles have exceptional ageing potential. You just have to taste a vintage from the 1990s to understand that why you need to be patient to be able to enjoy these wines are their peak. The Sancerre Cul de Beaujeu plot is outstanding. Grown on steep slopes, these vines give a very mineral wine of remarkable amplitude. Wine enthusiasts will have to be careful, though, as this wine is quite tight, and are sometimes reduced in its youth (then do not hesitate to aerate it). Its full character can therefore be hindered for some years. Wines that are older than 10 years are gorgeous and can therefore be kept for 10 more years in the cellar. The 2015 vintage offers a great range of wines, and it stands out if compared to the more austere 2014 vintage, because it has that very soft flavour on the finish. No wonder the outstanding structure of these wines will be renowned in this terroir in a few years. The most patient wine enthusiasts will then be able to enjoy them. International critics have been eulogistic about the quality of these wines. The bottles from the estate are sought after by many wine lovers. We therefore suggest you buy the estate's old vintages when you can.
