Madame Coco Sparkling Vintage 2016

Madame Coco Brut Blanc de Blancs 2016

France, Imported   |    750ml   |    12%
Madame Coco Brut Blanc de Blancs has been one of our most popular sparkling wines of the past couple of years, and the newly released 2016 is again attracting plenty of attention. A fantastic drinking vintage French sparkling made in the traditional method; you'd struggle to find a better sparkling for under $20 from anywhere in the world. 

Reviews of the 2015 vintage below:

"Ah yes. This is well done. It’s sweet-ish and simple but it’s attractive and well flavoured and will have widespread appeal. This has been pitched right, from all angles: price, presentation of quality. Strawberries. Delicious strawberries. Rated: 88 Points Alcohol: 11% Price: $20 Closure: Cork Drink: 2016 - 2017" - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.

"2015 Madame Coco Brut Blanc de Blancs (A$20) is an intriguing wine combining fresh, pure fruit aromas with a touch of aldehyde. "Quite simple aromatics of citrus blossom, lemon sherbet and fresh cut apple," Bourne said. "The palate is light and lithe with a zesty acidity adding energy to the finish." The wine is crisp and has a light texture and complexity suggesting a barrel fermented component" - Gourmet Traveller Magazine Panel Tasting, Dec/ Jan 2018.

Madame Coco is sourced primarily from the Aude Valley, in the foothills of the Pyrenees. The high altitude and mountain proximity results in cool evening breezes and nights that allow the creation of elegant sparkling wines. The region has been producing sparkling wines since the sixteenth century, a heritage that pre-dates Champagne by over a century.
Madame Coco is sourced from the cool-climate Aude Valley, in the foothills of the Pyrenees. The region has been making sparkling wine since the sixteenth century, a heritage that pre-dates Champagne by over a century. Cuvee Florence is an expressive and approachable wine blended by Vincent Charleux with Florence Schurr as the ideal aperitif. Grape Varieties: Sourced from primarily from Chardonnay, which provides unparalleled depth and length in sparkling wines. The indigenous Mauzac and Chenin Blanc provide elegance and a fine mineral acid backbone to the wine.

Winemaking: Grapes are hand harvested in the early morning before whole bunch pressing and a cool fermentation in stainless steel. The secondary fermentation takes place using the Charmat method over a longer than average five months to ensure maximum freshness and fruit expression.

Tasting Note: Pale in colour with a fine and persistent bead before a lifted and vibrant nose with classical lemon citrus and floral notes. The palate is very fresh and lively with crisp tropical and citrus flavours. The pure fruit flavours and delicate acidity contribute to a soft mouth-feel which makes the wine so approachable. A excellent apertif style that is rewarding from the first glass.
