Beaujolais with Christophe Coquard


Christophe Coquard is a wine maker and negotiant (Maison Coquard) making wines in the Beaujolais region of Burgundy. Christophe talks to us about wines from Burgundy and Beaujolais including Beaujolais Blanc made from 100% Chardonnay. We discuss the different styles of Gamay and the carbonic maceration process which involves putting whole bunches and stems into the tanks to macerate. For Beaujolais Nouveau all grapes are hand-picked as whole berries only plus the stems must be used. Experience and skill are needed to produce a good quality Beaujolais Nouveau and today growers are focusing on quality as well as the more fun aspect of Beaujolais Nouveau day which falls on the third Thursday of November.

Our clients say...

I thought the questions were excellent, an extremely valuable revision tool. They really helped highlight areas I thought I had revised and understood but clearly had not, which has enabled me to focus on key areas to revisit and study before going into the exam... I think it is a great resource and an essential revision aid for any WSET 3 students wishing to gain a competitive edge and successfully pass the WSET 3 exam.
