Madame Coco Blanc de Blanc Brut NV
Before the Champagne region produced its first sparkling wine, the Aude Valley in the foothills of the French Pyrenees was making sparkling as early as the sixteenth century. The Madame Coco Blanc de Blancs Brut NV is made by innovative Belgian winemaker Hilde Chevillot, the very same who created Le Chat Noir. Sourced from cool-climate vineyards, Madame Coco is a crisp and refreshing sparkling wine with an impressive depth of flavour.
Madame Coco is a blend of three different grapes: 80% Chardonnay, 10% Mauzac, and 10% Chenin Blanc. This wine surpasses all expectations with its fine and persistent bead before a lifted and vibrant nose of classical lemon citrus and floral notes. The palate is very fresh and lively with crisp tropical and citrus flavours.

Madame Coco is a very spiffy little number from Fourth Wave Wine.It’s well packaged, well priced, well made and well easy to quaff. It’s a blanc de blancs sparkling white wine grown in France’s Aude Valley. It’s made with chardonnay (50%) and chenin blanc mostly, though there are some small inputs from other high acid white varieties. It spends 12 months on lees. It’s made properly – methode traditionelle – none of this tank-gassed-fermented business. If you go through a bit ofsparkling wine, you’re pretty much mad not to jump onto this.It’s French, it’s bubbly, it’s under $20 and it’s a whole lot of fun. In many ways, there’s no need to say anything more. It’s musky and lemony, alive with fluffy bubbles and flavoursome enough. I know it’s a blanc de blancs but I saw some Turkish delight characters in it; though that said, I drank a bit too much ofthis a bit too quickly, so maybe my judgement was impaired. It’s that kind of wine. Buy.
