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.
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.
From the Aude Valley “at the foothills of the Pyrenees”. Produced by Fourth Wave Wine. We’ve seen a Madame Coco NV on The Winefront previously but this is the first vintage release we’ve reviewed. The truth is it offers plenty of attractive flavour. Finesse isn’t its strong card; flavour is. Peach and bread sticks, nuts and citrus. It’s most pleasant. And the packaging is good. Alcohol : 11.5%; Price : $20; Closure : Cork; Drink : 2015 - 2017; Rated : 88 Points; Campbell Mattinson; The Wine Front
