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.

This vineyard is comprised of the oldest vines with an average age of 40 years with some up to around 60. Facing fully south, steep and full of chalky soil that imparts a keen edge and mineral tension to the wine.  Packed with yellow orchard fruit, this is a wine that is picked later to produce depth and profound character letting the chalky soils bring the edge and balance. These are exceptional bottles that are rather limited from a storied site.
