The House Vazart-Coquart

In the heart of the vineyard

Our vineyard is exclusively located in Chouilly, a town with the Grand Cru classification of the Côte des Blancs. The main part of our vineyard (95%) is planted in Chardonnay, a variety of vine which is known for giving fine and complex wines. Pinot Noir makes up the rest of the production. A large part of plots (the average age is more than 30 years) allows us to produce very different grapes but top-quality grapes. Actually, young and old vines bring their best. We do everything in our power to ensure that each type of vine will be made into wine separately after the pressing. It allows us to sublimate their nature during the assembling.

 

The quality of these grapes so precious is the essential element of all cuvee. That is why we are devoted to get a perfect maturity thanks to demanding and durable farming methods (yields restrictions, growing grass between the rows, treatments limits, protection of the environment) and the optimum date for harvesting.

It proves you that we make our best for the biodiversity and the respect of the planet.

We are controled every 18 months to ensure these commitments.

The geese Vazart-Coquart

The goose is the power animal of the town of Chouilly, which was used to shelter several breedings. These birds regularly went to the “Tarnauds” - it is the local river - to drink, altering sometimes the traffic. By association, inhabitants became called “bilots” which means “geese” in the dialect of the region.

 

We find the goose as the symbol of the Champagne VAZART-COQUART on labelling and capsuling. On the labels, the 3 geese are an allusion to the past generations of winemakers. Jean-Pierre VAZART has been representing the 3rd generation.
The picking, always manual...

Cuvée Camille, 1er Cru

The Cuvee Camille is a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. This is a white wine, vinified in the Champagne tradition.

Deep yellow in colour with golden and lightgreen highlights gives a rich and fresh visual sensation.

Aromas of biscuit, blueberry, almond paste, red apple, strawberry give a smooth effervescence which makes a fruity and soft product.

Its richness can be combined with fleshy iodated and tasty food.

It is a perfect match with oysters, salmon and basil rillettes, fresh salmon, cod filet, “aumônière” of ashy goat cheese and leeks.

The Cuvee Brut Reserve is made only from Chardonnay: this is a “Blanc de Blancs.

This is a blend of several years, whose 25% are from a perpetual reserve implemented by Jacques Vazart in 1982.

A pale yellow colour with lightgreen hints which go with fine and light bubbles, it gives a fresh and ethereal vision. It delivers aromas of lemon, chalk, iodine, grapefruit and acacia give a fruity and delicate floral and mineral balance.

Its aperitif vocation harmonizes perfectly with oysters, grapefruit carpaccio, semi-cooked scallops, cod, with a saffron white butter sauce, with Brillat-Savarin (it is a French cheese)…

Vazart-Coquart & Fils - Demi-Sec

It delivers greedy flavours of marshmallows, candied lemon, then you will find mint notes, grilled nut cream, peach, quince, infusion and roasting flavours, caramel, white chocolate, ginger biscuit.

The overall is rich, greedy with a flavoured and fruity finish.

It will perfectly go with the traditionnal nougatine cake, coconut financier, pear charlotte, Far breton (a traditionnal cake of Britain), upside-down apple tart, ginger biscuit tiramisu, apple pie, Lemon Meringue Pie, peach Melba.

Club Trésors de Champagne

logo Club Trésors de ChampagneThe Club Trésors de Champagne symbolizes “the excellence of the wine area in its diversity.” Jean-Pierre Vazart integrated the club in 1996, he has always been seeking excellence. The specific excellence of this group composed of 28 winegrowers consists in making two compulsory tastings: clear wine before the bottling and after three years of bottle-aging. The bottle which is identifiable by its size of an old bottle of the Champagne region which is true to the tradition. The specificity of the House Vazart-Coquart is the complete aging under cork: it is the difference with classical cuvées where we put a cap for the aging until the disgorgement, the cuvée “Spécial Club” directly has a cork. It gives to this Cuvée Prestige fullness in mouth very specific which will seduce wine-lovers.
