2008 SANCERRE, Chavignol, Les Monts Damnés, Francois Cotat. Loire Valley
"2008 was a vintage that I bought for my own cellar, but the wines were so tight out of the blocks that I just tucked them away for future drinking and had not been back to a bottle of any of the three cuvées from François Cotat since release. Therefore, I was very happy to see how beautifully the Monts Damnés is evolving, as the wine delivers a deep, complex and nicely cool aromatic profile of lime, gooseberry, damp grass, petrol, fine minerality and orange blossoms in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and very long, with a fine core, lovely youthful grassiness in ascendency today and impressive cut and grip on the very well-balanced finish. 2017-2040" - John Gilman, writing in 2017.
