Green gold in color. The nose is nice; a bit grassy with some tropical fruit. On the palate, there is anice slightly oily texture. Tropical fruits and melon notes. Slightly tart. Nice finish. A very nice Sauvignon Blance that went well with food.
A very nice Sauvignon Blanc. Light green gold in color. The nose is slightly grassy with good minerals and slight limes. On the palate, a lovely oily texture. Nice fruit; kind of tropical and part citrus. Good acidity. Nice finish. Lovely wine that works well with food.
2013 Domaine François Cotat (Paul & François) Sancerre Les Monts Damnés, France, Loire - Wine Review
Seems to be in a bit of a dumb phase right now. Don't get me wrong, it is quite good but not as good as it can be. Light golden in color. The nose has some grapefruit and nice minerality. A bit of salinity. On the palate, this is good but not breaking out any complexities. Nice grapefruit and minerals. Good texture. Excellent with food. As good it is today, I would hold for a year or two or 8 and patience will be rewarded.
Very nice value for this under $10 per bottle wine. This vintage is getting a bit long in the tooth but I suspect younger vintages are showing much better. Light gold/green in color. The nose has slight tropical fruit and a bit of oxidation. On the palate, this has a nice enough crispness. Fruit is present but faded. Not much depth but still alive and drinking nicely. On a budget, this is worth checking out.
Light golden in color. The nose has nice minerality with some grapefruit. On the palate, this is a bit flabby and could use more acidity. On the other hand, the minerality carries forward. There is a bit of fruit. Nice finish. Eay sipping. A bit of a different take on Sauvignon Blanc.
Wow, this was one of the better Sauvignon Blancs from New Zealand that I have had in a while. Blind, I would have guessed this to be from the Loire Valley. Light gold in color. The nose has nice white grapefruit with a nice minerality. Those qualities contiue thru to the pa;late. It is ripe but well within reason. Excellent acidity. Long finish. My only complaint? I tried to buy some and was unable to find any.
Always one of the better Sancerre's from the home of Sauvignon Blanc. This one is a bit surprising though. Blind, I might have guessed New Zealand. The nose has that gooseberry quality and very fresh. On the palate, the gooseberry continues thru. Nice acidity. Plenty of verve. Should be great with food. Nice finish. Always a nice value.
