Characteristics: The first bottlings from Coutelas date back to 1910, but the family has a history in the Marne Valley since before the French Revolution. David Coutelas is a passionate grower-producer steeped in old traditions learned from his grandfather, the renowned Cesar Coutelas. His wines are fermented in used Chablis barrels and undergo a long secondary fermentation, of 3 to 5 years average. The Champagnes of David Coutelas are designed around a crisp natural acidity, they are age-worthy and develop beautifully in the bottle.
