Winemaker Notes

Complex and intense. Prevailing aromas of acacia-blossoms with a Muscat-like note of passion-fruit.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
W&S 90
Wine & Spirits
This wine's smoky, stony minerality is more prominent than its lemon and apple fruit flavors. Combined with racy acidity, that stoniness gives this a feeling of vitality and vigor.

Patient Cottat Vineyards in Sancerre Winery Image

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 improvements made in vinification techniques and the permanent concern about quality result in well-balanced wines of great diversity. 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 Fournier family’s Le Grand Caillou and Anciennes Vignes ranges of selected traditional Loire wines.p>

Sancerre Wine

Loire, France

Marked by its charming hilltop village in the easternmost territory of the Loire, Sancerre is famous for its racy, vivacious, citrus-dominant Sauvignon blanc. Its enormous popularity in 1970s French bistros led to its success as the go-to restaurant white around the globe in the 1980s.

While the region claims a continental climate, noted for short, hot summers and long, cold winters, variations in topography—rolling hills and steep slopes from about 600 to 1,300 feet in elevation—with great soil variations, contribute the variations in character in Sancerre Sauvignon blancs.

In the western part of the appellation, clay and limestone soils with Kimmeridgean marne, especially in Chavignol, produce powerful wines. Moving closer to the actual town of Sancerre, soils are gravel and limestone, producing especially delicate wines. Flint (silex) soils close to the village produce particularly perfumed and age-worthy wines.

About ten percent of the wines claiming the Sancerre appellation name are fresh and light red wines made from Pinot noir and to a lesser extent, rosés. While not typically exported in large amounts, they are well-made and attract a loyal French following.
