Vazart Coquart Extra Brut NV Champagne
PRODUCER: The Blanc de Blancs Extra-Brut from Vazart-Coquart is an elegant, finely crafted champagne of great finesse and vivacity. Only very limited quantities of this cuvee are produced by Vazart-Coquart, with a maximum of 3000 bottles being proposed each year.
WINE MAKING: It is made from Chardonnay from the Grand Cru terroir of Chouilly, where the 30 year of vines of this champagne house flourish. Vinified in stainless steel vats to extract pure, clean aromas, this Blanc de Blancs Extra-Brut then passes 4 years in the Vazart-Coquart cellar to mature and smooth its aromas and develop in complexity. It is an Extra-Brut, meaning that its dosage is extremely low, around 2,5g/L.
TASTING NOTE: It is a champagne which is clear lemon yellow in colour with light flashes of green, and a luxuriant, vivacious effervescence. A touch of gourmandise on the nose with its aromas of pastry, preserved lemon, hazelnuts and almonds is complemented by more subtle notes of acacia blossom, mint and liquorice. The palate is fresh, textured and refined with hints of citrus and a mineral framework characteristic of the Grand Cru terroirs of the Côte des Blancs. The finish is saline, tangy and lightly lemony.
A lovely champagne which will match well with seafood and shellfish.
