2008 Sancerre, Cuvee Paul, Domaine Francois Cotat, Chavignol

Alkaline, saline, oyster shell and kelp-like scents fascinatingly tweak the nose; then accompany rich, ripe quince and almond paste on a creamy palate, finishing with lingering, well-integrated sweetness and an uncanny combination of seductive soothing and mouthwatering invigoration. This highly unusual Sancerre with its striking juxtaposition of marine mineral elements and honeyed richness of fruit ought to be worth following for at least another decade.
