Patient Cottat was a famous Master Goldsmith in mid-19th century France. Born in Paris, he loved the Berry region of the central Loire Valley. His legacy is perpetuated through the Patient Cottat range of selected traditional Loire Valley wines, produced by the Fournier family.  Situated in the small village of Verdigny in the Sancerre region, the Fournier family has been making wine for many generations. The estate has grown from 13 acres in 1950 to almost 75 acres today, divided over the appellations of Menetou-Salon, Pouilly-Fumé, and Sancerre.

The Patient Cottat Sancerre is made of 100% Sauvignon Blanc (like all Sancerre by law) from 30-45 year old vines planted in limestone soils, exposed to the southwest. The yield is a low 3-4 tons/acre for the region's standards, and the vineyards are spread over about 10 acres. Look for a lemon color with golden-green reflections. Complex and intense in style, this has prevailing aromas of acacia blossoms complemented by a Muscat-like nose of passion fruit. The palate is full and fat, and very well balanced. Notes of litchi and a smallest touch of honey accent the finish. Pair with richer seafood dishes such as crab cakes or squid in a risotto or squid stewed with red peppers and tomatoes.

Rich and full of ripe white fruits, this is a concentrated wine. Apple flavors are shot through with lemon zest and acidity. Drink now.

Gooseberry and tangerine notes give this a lively edge, while mineral details add interest. Pure and focused, with solid range on the finish. Drink now through 2023. 10,000 cases made, 10,000 cases imported.
