2019 Domaine des Côtes Blanches (Francois Millet) Sancerre

SKU #1477825 91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is a rounded wine, with proper herbal flavors as well as ripe gooseberry and citrus. It is textured, mineral and still young. It will likely be at its best from 2021. (RV) (tasted under Francois Millet label) Inner quote mark (7/2020)

K&L Notes

Domaine Côtes Blanches was established in the 1930s by Bernard and Pierre Millet. In 1980, it was time for the second generation to take the reins, so François and Monique expanded the estate to 21 hectares of vines (15ha of Sauvignon, 6ha of Pinot Noir). After returning from his studies in Beaune, Nicolas (son of François and Monique) joined the family-run estate and brought a newly energized passion. The family is dedicated to the land and the environment by which they are surrounded. All farming is done organically, harvest dates are dictated by nature rather than the calendar, and only gravity systems are used in the winemaking--no pumps--and all wines are allowed to rest 6-8 weeks in bottle before release. (Bottled as Domaine Francois Millet in Europe)

We have carried this wine for a couple of years now and I have always enjoyed it. The 2019...WOW! The BEST yet! Three stars from Guido. Lots of limestone and flint on the palate; has wonderful length and is food friendly. This would be a great luncheon wine -- maybe baked goat cheese with fines herbs and baguette?

For anyone searching for a delightful Saturday afternoon Sancerre under $20, you’ve found it! Springboard aromas of light gooseberry and lemon verbena, followed by full flavors of lemongrass, stone fruit and fresh-cut hay balanced by telltale textbook acidity. A captivating white that will pair well with grilled scallops or tangy goat cheese and crusty baguette.
