Product: H1350B
  • Ready, but will improve

Description

François Cotat's Sancerre ‘Les Monts Damnés Evineyard is perched on a steep hillside, facing south, with thin topsoils. These “damned mountains Eprovide the most chiseled, vibrant and deeply profound of Cotat’s Sancerres'. Racked and bottled according to the lunar calendar the wine is bottled by hand, unfined and unfiltered. On the nose Monts Damnés offers real refinement, purity and intensity, with some floral top notes. The palate is initially rich, with a real feeling of density and viscosity, but then the classic Monts Damnés minerality kicks in; the wine is fine, elegant and chalky with an intense freshness that leaves a clean and energetic finish.
