"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."

91 Wine Spectator

“This firm, well-knit Champagne delivers ripe and juicy nectarine and blood orange granita flavors, with accents of honey, chalk and pickled ginger lingering on the fine bead through the finish.”

Product Description:

Stéphane Coquillette is a fourth-generation winemaker in Champagne. His father, Christian, has been running the Saint Chamant Champagne house since 1950, and he lovingly sent his son out to start his own estate when Stéphane was 25. Though mentored by his father, Stéphane developed a very different style of expression at his own house, creating leaner, drier Champagnes, primarily from Chouilly (Grand Cru), Cuis (1er Cru 99%) for Chardonnay, and d’Aÿ (Grand Cru) and Mareuil/Aÿ (1er Cru 99%) for Pinot Noir. Meticulously committed to organic practices, Stéphane avoids herbicides at all costs. Everything is done by hand, including trellising and pruning, which helps avoid disease and allows for a healthy crop. With more than 10 different parcels, he produces several single-vintage and single-vineyard Champagnes — a rarity in this region — and all his wines are small-production. Stéphane Coquillette Champagnes are characteristically precise, fresh and lively.
