Description

The cuvée Les Sens Boisés by Coessens is powerful and spicy.

It owes its unique character to an ageing entirely in small oak casks. The wine is put in barrels just after being pressed and stays there during the entire winemaking process, both first and second fermentations and ageing, and it is only a few days before bottling that it leaves the casks.

During this relatively lengthy period in barrel an exchange takes place between the wine and the wood, with micro oxygenation bringing a complexity and an increased ageing potential to this cuvee Les Sens Boisés.


Presentation of Jérôme Coessens

The use of Bougogne barrels in the making of this blanc de noirs creates an absolutely unique champagne. It is made from the 2008 harvest, although the vintage is not mentioned. It’s a champagne that I make only in really great years, and only 2000 bottles.
