Lot #418. Gerard Boulay Sancerre La Cote 2013

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Region: France, Loire, Sancerre.
Score: 95+ JG.
"The 2013 La Côte is a brilliant young bottle of Sancerre. Monsieur Boulay only began producing a single vineyard bottling from La Grande Côte in the 2010 vintage, as these are some of his younger vines, and until the celebrated their twentieth birthday in 2010, he felt that they were simply still too young to be bottled on their own. The 2013 La Côte is brilliant, wafting from the glass in a stunning mélange of grapefruit, lemon, kaleidoscopic minerality, petrol, complex botanicals, a touch of smokiness and a topnote of citrus peel. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and again simply shows off stunning mid-palate depth for the vintage, with brisk acids, laser-like focus and great grip on the pure and dancingly long finish. Great, great wine." John Gilman, View From the Cellar, Sep/Oct 2014, Issue #53
Provenance: The Bilten Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $85
