Vazart-Coquart Blanc de Blanc NV

This winery started out as a farming estate that focused on everything except grape but in 1954 that things started to turn around.  Now the estate is run biodynamically and all the old farming building have been converted into either tasting rooms or the winery.

This is a step up in quality to the last wine and you can see it in the flavours and length.  The wine reminds me of a old comedy movie where the host pelts the guest with a lemon meringue pie at the end of the show but in this wine it is the first flavour you get. There are also masses of smoked oysters, bread dough and spicy marzipan that fill out the mid palate which make this wine rather inviting. Love it.
