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.
