Coutier Brut Tradition is a sparkling wine made with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in the AOC Champagne denomination in Champagne (France) by René Coutier.
The Coutier family has been working its vineyards in the Ambonnay Grand Cru village since 1619. A total of 9 hectares of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vines are currently managed by René Courtier who, through traditional practices and the pure and spicy style of the house, creates champagnes worth talking about.
As the first family to plant Chardonnay in a village clearly focussed on Pinot Noir, the Coutier family has managed to take advantage of the characteristics of a Grand Cru. This is the case with Coutier Brut Tradition, a champagne grown in clay soil with limestone and calcareous subsoils, where the use of herbicides has long been avoided.
In the winery, Coutier Brut Tradition is made from the 2013 base wine with other reserves from previous years. Fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tanks, the second fermentation takes place in the bottle and the wine is aged in the winery for 48-60 months. After disgorging, it is finished with a dosage of 6.5 grams of sugar per litre.
Coutier Brut Tradition is an expressive, powerful and fresh champagne made by one of the most prestigious wineries in the Ambonnay area. A classic that you really should try.
