2004 Les Monts Damnés, François Cotat: transcending the variety

Had a real treat at a lunchtime meeting yesterday when someone kindly brought along a bottle of François Cotat's 2004 Les Monts Damnés, Sancerre. When initially opened it was quite tight and mineral but after a while in the glass it opened up giving honeyed and floral notes. Beautifully balanced, this 2004 transcended the limitations of Sauvignon Blanc.

"Beautifully balanced this 2004 transcended the limitations of Sauvignon Blanc."

That you feel that Sauvignon Blanc has "limitations" comes as a real surprise- I am unaware of any such "limitations" with the grape...
