  • 2014 Domaine François Cotat (Paul & François) Sancerre Les Culs de Beaujeu - France, Loire Valley, Upper Loire, Sancerre (9/16/2016)
    I just LOVE this wine...third time in a couple months....the minerality is amazing in this...chalky, salty, sea and limestone funk....bright and zesty citrus fruit...lemon/lime, quince...little tropical mango and pineapple as well. SO energized with fresh squeezed acidity.....yet still a creamy full mouthfeel.....complexities of lemon grass, white flower/lime blossom florals, white pepper dust. LONG dry puckering lemon and spice finish....fantastic! Much better than the 09 Vatan I just had. (95 pts.)

I'm one of the Vatan crowd, but not particularly belligerent by nature :-). I've also come to the conclusion over the years that only Francois Cotat ever really comes close, so I can live with this :-).
Brilliant wines.

Co-tah.

In French, a consonant at the end of a word is usually not pronounced.

I've never had the Les Culs de Beaujeu but every François Cotat wine I've had has been positively stunning! Thanks for the note Brian.

Having trouble locating this retail in SF Bay Area and all of CA, unless I get a case. Maybe too early. As I recall the cdb may see some oak so maybe later release here. Any thoughts or sources?

Rule does not always hold with names, so you have to know in each individual case. I don't in this one, but Suzanne well may,

Also thanks for the note, Buzz, ordered me up some.

Joshua,

Very true; I've only heard Co-tah, but that's from people itb, not from the family themselves.

There were a handful left at K&L when I picked up a couple on Friday. Looks like they're gone now - you could call to find out if they've got more on the way.

Just can't do it...no will power...6 pack gone already! Will have to rely on picking up $ome older Cotat at auction or retail if I ever want to experience one with some age on it, as I just can't help myself drinking them! Another 14 drinking AMAZING right now!
