Overview of the Wine
Situated in the small village of Verdigny in the Sancerre region, the Fournier family has been making wine for many generations. The estate has grown from 13 acres in 1950 to almost 75 acres today, divided over the appellations of Menetou-Salon, Pouilly-Fumé, and Sancerre.
The story of Patient Cottat goes back generations of winemakers in the Loire Valley. It all began in 1950 with Paul Fournier in the renowned winegrowing village of Verdigny. Since 2015, the Villebois family has continued to enhance and perpetuate the efforts of Patient Cottat’s original owners, following sustainable practices and continuously working to ensure the winery is as successful as possible as they move forward into the future.
Patient Cottat was a famous "Master Goldsmith" in mid-19th century France. Born in Paris, he loved the Berry region of the central Loire Valley. His legacy is perpetuated through the Grand Caillou and Anciennes Vignes ranges of selected traditional Loire wines.
