Tasting Notes

Invigorating and fresh, with lemony citrus aromas and flavors accented by delicate white flowers. The palate is full and fresh, with balanced acidity and minerality on the finish. This a style of wine which keeps your palate fresh and alive. Although easy to drink it has complexity and intrigue up and down the aromatic and palate. You'll be wanting another after the first one has disappeared. (Eric Story, Loire Buyer)

    The Eric Cottat Sancerre is a fantastic value year after year. White flower aromatics, green apple, melon, and mouthwatering acidity and minerality that will keep you coming back for a second glass!

    Carmalized zesty Meyer lemon, with hints of melon, grapefruit and a beautiful flinty minerality overwhelm the nose of this easy drinking porch pounder.

    Looking for a snappy expression from Sancerre for under $20? Look no further, here is a simple yet great representation of a wine that displays that inimitable mineral sensation that only Sauvignon Blanc from this region embodies. Perfumed with white flowers and a tangy, crisp citrus palate, this is a total go-to white that never disappoints.

    I can’t get enough of this wine. And, it’s not just because we share an awesome first name. Upon my first visit I was immediately sucked in with the simple and easy going manner of which the wines are made… and this shows and ends up in the bottle. Get yourself some!

    Classic Sancerre aromatics of what I call "pierre à fusil" or flint -- but not aggressively so, along with bright citrus notes. Zippy and zingy on the palate for sure, but also with a honeyed red grapefruit core which I found absolutely delicious and incredibly food friendly. Paradise will be found if you pair this with fresh goat cheese and green apples, oysters, shrimp salad with red grapefruit, scallops, and I'm just getting started...

    A bright and vibrant Sancerre, with high acid and crisp zesty lemon and lime on the nose and the palate intertwined with an enticing white blossom nose and a dry orange zest finish. Keep a few of these stashed in the fridge for company and patio sipping!

    Crunchy, not sweet, notes of melon meet up with tarragon, and gravel, in the 2013 Cottat. There is a nice sunny depth to the fruit on the palate, which is not as coolly green as some Sancerres, having more an accent of fresh herb, and with loads of energy underneath it all. Dusty gravel pops up again in the finish, just the way you want it to.

    Green apple, mineral, citrus pith with great focus and acidity. Wonderfully balanced. What a fabulous Sancerre!

    Once knew a very fine fisherman who generously invited us over for fresh-caught salmon, so fresh in fact that it tasted like it leapt from the cold Pacific waters right onto the hot coals. Looking back, I wish I'd had of bottle or two of this beautifully-delineated, expressively-textured, citrus and mineral-enhanced Sancerre at the time to complement the astronomically-gastronomic flavors of the grilled salmon. What a feast!
    Top Value!
