Tasting Notes

We were first introduced to the wines of Eric Cottat a few years back. He was brought to our attention by one of our long-time friends and winemakers in Sancerre, and we brought in a small amount, as that was all we were allowed to take at the time. Eric is a one-man show and only produces a small amount of wines each vintage for family, friends, and close customers, and then sells the rest of his fruit off to other eager producers in the region. This Sancerre blanc is always 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 that keeps your palate fresh and alive. Although easy to drink, it has complexity and intrigue up and down the aromatic and palate. You'll want another after the first one has disappeared. Open and enjoy tonight with seafood or fish dishes.

    Eric Cottat -- the pride of our direct import Sancerre program -- is a one man show in Sancerre who makes a tiny production from his best vines, then sells off the rest of his grapes to other eager producers. The 2017 is very clean and mineral-laden, with subtle, fresh flavors of melon, citrus and a touch of lemongrass. A true symphony of flavors...get it while it lasts!

    Our favorite crisp white is back with the incredible new vintage! One of our best Direct Import discoveries, Eric Cottat is a one-man show and only produces a small amount of wines each year. This popular Sancerre blanc is classic: bright lemon fruit and lively minerality, plus an aromatic white floral nose. The 2017 release is a crowd-pleasing yet sophisticated Sauvignon Blanc that drinks well on its own or with almost any food. Although easygoing, it has complexity and enough zippy acidity to keep your palate interested. One our best values, this pairs perfectly with your holiday feast, but is light enough to enjoy any time. Limited bottles left - don't miss your shot at holiday perfection!​

    Eric Cottat has long been a favorite producer of Sancerre at K&L. His wine is a pure expression of Sancerre terroir: light bodied, with zesty, mouthwatering Thai lime and lemon rind notes, effusive terres blanches minerality and zippy acidity. This is a must try for any Sancerre lover, and 2017 is an excellent vintage for classic Sancerre style.
