Vazart-Coquart Blanc de Blancs Special Club 2008

Mix 12
Mix 6
Per Bottle
Description & Technical Information
Champagne Vazart-Coquart, established in the 19th century, produce only single cru champagnes from their 11-hectare estate in Champagne's largest Grand Cru village, Chouilly. Being the Côte des Blancs, mainly Chardonnay is grown here, with just 4.5-hectares of Pinot Noir planted in the whole village. Only a handful of independent growers in the region can boast ownership of a Pinot Noir plot in Chouilly: and Vazart-Coquart are one of them. Vazart-Coquart were just the third producer to be awarded the highest level of environmental certification in 2012.

Special Club was created in 1971 by 12 grower-producers, now called the Club Trésors de Champagne. Their mission “to promote Champagne produced from 100% estate-owned grapes that are supremely terroir-expressive.” Members can offer a special cuvée to represent the best of their estate which has to be approved by a panel of winemakers to confirm the high standards of the club and it can only be from a top vintage.

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: 7 years on the lees
Disgorged: November 2016
Dosage: 7 g/l
Drink: Now for 5+ years

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.
Champagne Vazart-Coquart Overview
Expert Reviews
Jancis Robinson MW
“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.”
Jancis Robinson MW
“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.”

    Is Vintage 2008 The Next 2002?

    We compared fifteen 2008s (+ new Krug Grande Cuvée based on 2008) to assess the quality of this emerging vintage in champagne. For reference, we tasted five 2002s alongside - and threw in a couple of curveballs to keep everyone alert!
