Champagne Vazart-Coquart Overview
+
Blanc de Blancs Special Club is Vazart Coquart's prestige cuvée. Produced from only the highest quality grapes and aged for 6-7 years on cork (rather than crown cap), this is an exceptional blend. As more 2008s emerge on the market, this vintage is quickly becoming recognised as one of the best in living memory and this prestige cuvée offers a delightful expression of an impressive harvest. Production of Blanc de Blancs Special Club is limited to just 20,000 bottles per year. As one of the most senior members of the famous 'Club Trésors' (Special Cub), Vazart-Coquart must produce their best current cuvée in the Special Club embossed bottle shape.

Weather: After a rainy but mild winter without any prolonged cold spells, spring arrived with some very localised frosts. Cool weather returned in June and the infrequent sunshine prolonged the feeling of freshness. The spring to autumn weather was bright with sunny spells and the long, hot days and cool nights during September gave the grapes excellent acidity during the harvest period. The 2008 vintage is fast emerging as one of the best since the renowned and now-legendary 2002.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand Cru
Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Ageing: 6-7 years on the lees
Drink: 2016-2020

Tasting Note: A champagne with delicate flavours of citrus fruits that combine with a smooth mousse texture to produce a rounded mid-palate. The finish is lingering and long. From such an incredible vintage, this 2008 will be certain to reward in the future but due to the elegance of the harvest is already a very bold champagne.

Vazart-Coquart Blanc de Blancs Special Club 2008 does not have an individual branded gift box and will be delivered in our own TFB gift box.

“Aged only under cork.
Very pale, with green notes and some real interest on the nose. Very appetising. Quite youthful with some yeasty notes. Really interesting.”

“100% Chardonnay grand cru. The Special Club is aged with a cork and staple rather than crown cap. It is aged for over seven years.
Light and delicate but intricate too. Racy and feather light. Just knitting together. Very promising.”
