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.
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.
