SKU: B74 / 1504 /Regular price $68.95
Domaine François Cotat is a small 2.8 hectare domaine that is perhaps the truest example of a “vin de garage”. This domaine came to life after the French government ruled that “independent producers” could no longer sell the same wine under two different labels. However, François’s father and uncle had been doing just this, sharing the family’s vineyards and winery to produce wines that they each sold under their own label. After retirement, the vineyards were passed to their respective sons Pascal and François, who split up the vineyard holding and started up their own labels. ’Les Monts Damnés’ is sourced from a 0.8 ha on a steep hillside from 30 years old vines, on average.
