does cote mean - slope (which seems logical)
or coast (which translates) ?
submitted by Matthew
Indeed "cote" means
has nothing to do with coast, sea shore and river
order to get more sun into the grapes and to drain
the vines, winemakers grow vines on the hills towards
the south and the south-west.
accurate translation of cote would be hill.
