SKU: B400 / 1507 /Regular price $68.95
Domaine Pascal Cotat is a small 2.5 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, Pascal’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. Just recently, Pascal further separated himself by building his own new winery in Sancerre. ‘La Grande Côte’ vineyard is a 60 year-old, 1 hectare vineyard on a steep north facing slope, entirely owned by Pascal and François Cotat.
