Named after François' father, Cuvée Paul is an incredibly rare wine made from the richest barrel of Cotat's Sancerre, set aside as having the greatest potential for ageing. Made only in exceptional vintages, the fine, stony freshness for which Sancerre is famed is found in concert with a wealth of fruit notes ranging from lively citrus to more tropical notes.

Notes of orange peel, lemon oil, pineapple and passion fruit all appear when left to develop in glass. These would be interesting enough themselves, but the wine is set apart by the undercurrent of exotic spices such as cardamom and anise.

A rarity for Sauvignon Blanc, this wine has the potential to age for 50 years.

François Cotat’s vines are located in the hallowed village of Chavignol on the legendary Mont Damnés, where the chalky and mineral soils and steep slopes already give him a leg up in terms of terroir. The Domaine was founded in the 1940s by brothers Francis and Paul Cotat, who bottled just a single cuvée. When they retired in the 1990s, they handed over the Domaine to their sons François and Pascal.

François eschews modern technology, preferring a hands-off and minimalist approach. While not certified organic, François’s practices align with organic viticulture. Often the last to harvest, François relies on indigenous yeasts for fermentation, avoids pesticides and doesn’t filter his wines, resulting in wines with very rich and refined structure. François’s wines have been known to be declassified in some vintages because the local committee finds them too atypical of Sancerre!

His incredible wines develop with age and, in the best vintages, can be cellared for more than 30 years.
