Stéphane Coquillette, 1er Cru Brut Carte d’Or

Write a Review

Vintage: NV

Varietals: 65% Pinot Noir & 35% Chardonnay 

Farming: Organic

The new release of Coquillette's NV Brut Premier Cru Carte d'Or is showing well, mingling notes of fresh peach and lemon oil with hints of verbena and toasted nuts. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and elegantly textural, with an inviting core of fruit and racy acids, it concludes with a penetrating finish.

Grapes are slowly pressed, and the wine undergoes malolactic and ages in stainless steel tanks. Dosage 5 g/l. Reserve wines are not used to adjust the blend of the non vintage wines, therefore all are from a single vintage but not marked as such since they do not rest on lees for the three-year mandatory minimum period.
