Sauvignon Blanc








Loire Valley


From 1947 until the early 1990’s, the Cotat family, under the direction of the brothers Francis and Paul, made a single cuvee in one cellar for each of their brothers designated wines, but bottled it under two separate labels. Upon retiring, the Cotat brothers turned their vineyards over to each of their sons, Francis son Pascal and Paul’s son Francois. Today the cousins produce their wines in separate cellars, but each still practices the same traditional winemaking techniques mastered by their fathers." -Supplier notes

Named after François father, Cuvée Paul is a very rare wine made from the richest barrel of Sancerre La Grande Côte, a true rarity in one of the greatest vintages of recent years. Ample and powerful on the palate, over-ripe but brilliantly balanced by an invigorating fruity acidity. Great wine.
