Description & Technical Information
-
Vazart-Coquart Blanc de Blancs is an elegant blend of pure Chardonnay with a low dosage and a minimum of four years ageing on the lees. A blend of several years, the 25% reserve wines are from a perpetual reserve implemented by Jacques Vazart in 1982. Very limited quantities are produced each year, with maximum annual production at 3,000 bottles. All the grapes come from their own 11 hectare estate in Chouilly.

The current base vintage is 2015 blended with 5% of 2014, 5% of 2014 and 25% 'Solera' reserve. 'Solera' reserve began in 1982 and is renewed each year with 40% of the new harvest.

Tasting Note: A light yellow colour with a fine stream of bubbles. On the nose: aromas of fresh lemon and slight hazelnut hints. On the palate: a smooth mousse with a continued citrus fruit theme. This is an interesting Blanc de Blancs, full of light zesty lemon notes that continue throughout the finish.

Expert Reviews
17/20
Jancis Robinson MW
“Jean-Pierre Vazart has 11 ha (27 acres), all of it in Chouilly on the Côte des Blancs. All of his wines are therefore Blancs de Blancs Grand Cru Chouilly. He is the third-biggest land-holder in Chouilly, although some way behind Moët and Louis Roederer! His wines are made completely in stainless steel, for ‘purity’ as he says. The estate is HVE-certified and in conversion to full organic status. This is 100% Chardonnay. Base 2014, plus 5% 2013, 5% 2012 and 25% ‘solera’ reserve begun in 1982 (by Jean-Pierre's father) and renewed each year with 40% of the new harvest. Malo done. Bottled March 2015, disgorged September 2018. Dosage 3.5 g/l. Bright lemony straw colour. Attractive hint of putty on well-integrated palate. Really creamy and beautifully balanced. None of the extremism that is sometimes to be found in Extra Brut wines. Rather difficult to spit. Really very appealing.”

“100% Chardonnay. Stainless steel. Base 2009 plus 30% reserve from the ‘solera’ begun in 1982. Bottled April 2010, disgorged December 2013, 44 months on lees. Dosage 3 g/l.
Nervy nose with a hint of putty. Firm impact on the palate but not aggressive, not aggressively dry. Wonderfully interesting for the price. Very satisfying finish.”
