Winemaker's Notes:

Clear golden green reflections. Complex and intense. Prevailing aromas of acacia-blossoms with a Muscat-like note of passion-fruit. Full and fat. Very well balanced. Aromas of litchi and a touch of honey.

Delicious as an aperitif or with smoked fish.

About Patient Cottat:

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 5 hectares in 1950 to almost 30 hectares today, divided over the appellations of Mentou Salon, Pouilly-Fume and Sancerre. The improvement made in vinification techniques and the permanent concern about quality result in well-balanced wines of great diversity.
