Terroir The vineyard of Château du Coing lies on a subsoil of metamorphic rock (two-mica and garnet gneiss). The orientation of the hillside along the Maine river has led much of the gneiss to erode into sheets which are very weathered across the entire plot. Micaschist and amphibolite can also be found.
Winemaking methods The must undergoes alcoholic fermentation until it reaches 11% abv. This first stage gives us a still wine. The secondary fermentation takes place in the bottle, triggered by the addition of a mixture of sugar and yeast. 18 months’ ageing on lees before disgorgement.
Dosage, to obtain a Brut sparkling wine.
Tasting This wine has delicate citrus aromas, as well as notes of white flowers. It then tends to develop brioche-like notes after a few months in the bottle.
Recommended with… Perfect as an aperitif or with desserts. Also pairs well with white meats.
Enjoy chilled at approximately 12°C.
