This lively Champagne is made from 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay. It features notes of sweet nectarine and fresh pear, with undertones of honey and chalk from the limestone terroir. It has a light, dry finish and extra fine bead. Exquisite as an apéritif.
Stéphane Coquillette is a fourth-generation winemaker. 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. Meticulously committed to organic practices, Stéphane avoids herbicides at all costs. Everything is done by hand, including trellising and pruning. He produces several single-vintage and single-vineyard Champagnes - a rarity in this region. His champagnes are characteristically precise, fresh and lively.
