What We're Drinking

 

One of the most serious English Sparkling producers. This historic estate has been in the Goring family since 1743. The tiny 16-acre vineyard is close-planted on a steep south-facing chalk escarpment described as 'similar to the Côte des Blancs' in Champagne. The fruit is picked very selectively with quality being the absolute focus. The grapes are pressed gently using a traditional Coquard press. After three years on the lees this wine, composed of 45% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay & 22% Pinot Meunier, is hand disgorged and balanced with a minimal dosage of just 4g/L. It has a fine counterbalance between toasty richness and power from the wines élevage in Burgundian French Oak barrels, with racy acidity, tension and a focused chalky minerality.

Keith's Burgundy Hotline: Domaine Odoul-Coquard

Sébastien Odoul (right) with his father and the Coquard brothers.

By: Keith Wollenberg | K&L Burgundy Buyer

Hello Burgundy Lovers,

I am excited to share with you our newest discovery in Burgundy, Domaine Odoul-Coquard.  Young Sébastien Odoul was trained at wine school, and has an elegant style and loves to work in the vineyard, with minimal intervention in the cellar, in order to reveal the terroir of individual sites. Our first purchase was limited to just five wines, but you will not want to miss these wines. I think he is destined for much more fame than he has at present. 

 

2009 Domaine Odoul-Coquard Nuits-St-Georges "Aux St. Jacques"       Price: $43.99

This vineyard is on the North side of Nuits, on the border with Vosne Romanee, just a bit south of Vosne Romanee Aux Reas. This has the rich and charming fruit and concentration you expect of the site and the terrific vintage. It has a black fruited character, with a succulent texture and lovely finish. What's not to like? (Keith Wollenberg, K&L Burgundy Buyer, 03/12) . 


2010 Domaine Odoul-Coquard Morey St. Denis "Les Crais Gillon"         Price: $47.99  

This single vineyard Morey comes from a vineyard with fairly deep, well-drained soil, towards the Gevrey side of the village. The domaine farms 0.5Ha, and in 2010 harvested a tiny 14 Hl/Ha, extremely low yield, due in large part to the planting of older pinot fin vines, with extremely tiny berries. It shows rich fruit, focus and a bit of meatiness on the finish. This has lots of both charm and character, and even the recent bottling could not hide the charming fruit.. (Keith Wollenberg, K&L Burgundy Buyer, 03/12) 


2010 Domaine Odoul-Coquard Chambolle Musigny            Price: $49.95

This comes from a vineyard not far from the Morey border, just below Les Baudes, 1er Cru. It has pretty red fruit notes as the first impression, followed by a recognition of the lovely subtle texture of this wine. The tannins are round and very well-robed in character. Overall, this is charming, attractive, and very much has a lovely Chambolle style, with both richness and elegance. It is, quite simply, lovely. (Keith Wollenberg, 03/12) 


2010 Domaine Odoul-Coquard Morey St. Denis 1er Cru "Les Millandes"          Price: $69.95

This is one of my favorite vineyards in Morey (Grand Crus included!). It is always a bit more supple than the Grands Crus, and more feminine in character. This has a supple and lovely mouthfeel, with terrific energy and drive. The tannins are extremely fine in character, and very well-robed. This is solid and rich, without being at all blocky or backwards. Bravo. (Keith Wollenberg, K&L Burgundy Buyer, 03/12) 


2010 Domaine Odoul-Coquard Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru "Les Baudes"     Price: $74.99

Chambolle Les Baudes lies directly below Bonnes Mares, Grand Cru, and tends to make a firmer styled wine. But this may be the exception that proves that rule, since it has lovely rich red fruit, an elegant character and a long finish. It shows rich and pretty raspberry and cherry notes and can only be Chambolle. Bravo, Sébastien! Keith Wollenberg, K&L Burgundy Buyer (03/12)
