Francois Cotat has become a symbol for organic farming leading to exceptional wines.

Based in Chavignol he took over his fathers share of the family domaine in the 90's and has made wines of exceptional quality and clarity all with an idiosyncratic bent.

Les Caillottes take their name from the very fine soil composed of stones, flint and limestone pebbles that comprise this parcel. Once again harvesting later, not with the aim of adding residual sugar but to add depth against mineral acidity that can make the younger vines appear overtly lean.

Aromatic and bright with citrus, stone, pepper and ginger. Heaps of detail and nuance like it has been carved from those little rocks, poised with that acidity against the slightly plusher weight of the fruit finishing long and bone dry.
