    Winemaker's Notes:

    Like the starting gun of the 100 meter dash, this wine is a shock of flint and smoke from its perfume to its zesty body. Pascal's 35-year-old vines deliver concentrated yet very fresh Sauvignon; notes of white flowers, black pepper and pear skins show on the linear yet precise nose. The mouth is all Cotat—poached pears, touches of sea salt and peach blossoms are rich, lush and wonderfully savory. The finish lingers with ginger and cinnamon notes. A racy, lively and very supple "Monts Damnés."

    Critical Acclaim:

    Pale yellow. Deep, mineral-inflected aromas of pear, quince, anise and white flowers. Round and expansive in the mouth, offering deep orchard fruit flavors and complicating notes of succulent herbs and flowers. Manages to be both rich and energetic, finishing with excellent thrust and lingering minerality. This wine has a great track record for rewarding cellaring.

    International Wine Cellar

    Narcissus, fresh lemon, nettle, and intimations of chalk in the nose of Pascal Cotat's 2008 Sancerre Les Monts Damnes lead to bright, mouth-watering, practically spine-tingling and yet extract rich and substantial palate. Finishing with brash citricity, bitter hints of huckleberry and lemon pip, and minerality of a sort you lick your lips in vain to remove, this handsomely lean, muscular Monts Damnes (truly dry, at 2 grams residual sugar) should prove fascinating and versatile over the coming 4-6 years.
