"This fine Champagne produced from 100% Chardonnay grapes from the Grand Cru village of Ambonnay is definitely a rarity as this village is known almost exclusively for its Pinot Noir based wines. The golden color with feint hints of green belie the high-toned nature of this fine wine. The nose shows classic apples and white stone fruit blossoms tinged with citrus. A creamy texture with fresh mineral tones and floral notes round out the racy acidity that follow. Very classy stuff... " Michael Sullivan, Beaune Imports

The Coutier family can trace its history in Armonnay from 1619, but the estate was not founded until 1880. Rene Coutier runs operations these days. He manages are 22 acres of vineyards in the Grand Cru of Ambonnay, and sells about 80% of his fruit to a local cooperative.  With the remaining 20% he bottles his own label champagnes. Usually Ambonnay is a Pinot Noir stronghold, but Coutier's father was the first to plant Chardonnay. Base wines were fermented in stainless steel tanks, and underwent malolactic conversion. It was then aged on its lees for 30 months.

Fine and zesty with aromas and flavors of lemony citrus, green apple, bartlett pears, stone fruit especially white peach and apricots, with a fresh herb and minerally tang. Round and mouth-filling this champagne can be drunk alone or with creamy cheeses, smoked fishes, shellfish.
