Tasting Notes

Classic Sauvignon Blanc, made extra special from old vines. Dense aromas of yellow pear, grapefruit, gunflint, and lime zest, with a balanced palate of citrus, stony minerality, and zippy acidity.


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.
