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. 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: The 2012 weather has been hallmarked by many as very challenging but has created some stunning Champagne. Relatively low yields due to various weather conditions throughout the year. The winter months brought some frosts and hail which damaged the early stages of bud burst. August and September were very warm and this helped rescue and give the grapes a stunning maturity.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand Cru Chouilly
Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Fermentation: 100% stainless steel
Lees Ageing: 6.5 years on cork
Laid in the Cellars: March 2013
Disgorged: August 2019
Dosage: 3.5 g/l
Drink: Now to 2026+

Tasting Note: Very fresh with bundles of lemon and lime and beautiful chalky character. The low dosage makes it extra brut but that doesn’t come across as it has so much fruit and ripeness mixed with lees character that builds up to some light custard layering. This feels young and vibrant with an exciting future. This is a good example showing how good one grape variety can be from one of the best Chardonnay villages in Champagne.
Champagne Vazart-Coquart Overview
Expert Reviews
Jancis Robinson MW
“All tank-fermented Chardonnay aged for 6.5 years on cork after bottling in April 2013. Disgorged August 2019. Dosage 3.5 g/l. Champagne Vazart-Coquart produce only single-cru champagnes from their 11-hectare estate in Champagne's largest grand cru village. For an explanation of Spécial Club, see Champagne's young ones strut their stuff. Unusually broad flask bottle.
Greenish gold. Sweet vanilla notes on the nose with a hint of heady lilies. Quite aggressive froth and something a little sour and astringent on the end after some unintegrated sweetness. Still unintegrated and a little brutal impact on the palate. Very youthful, which may be a reflection of the vintage's concentration. Quite pungent.”
