    Full Description

    Francois Coueslant was winemaker and manager at Tahbilk from 1877 to 1886, described in the 'Australasian' at the time as a "practical vigneron from France, but a gentleman of progressive ideas, ever ready to adopt new and improved methods of working."
    It was his adoption of "progressive" ideas that led to what has been described as Tahbilk's early 'Golden Age'. He is credited with adding "Chateau" to Tahbilk ; a moniker that held until the year 2000, was responsible for the construction of our iconic Tower and led the fight against the vine louse phylloxera when it appeared on the Estate in 1870 - accountable at the time for decimating, amongst others, the vineyards of France and colonial Victoria.
    It seemed entirely appropriate then that we recognise what has been an enduring influence at Tahbilk with his naming of our premium sparkling releases.

    This limited release Wine Club Member exclusive offering is recognisably Estate Marsanne. Lifted citrus and tropical fruits with a clean minerality and hints of honeysuckle, its time on yeast lees has contributed nutty, bready elements into the mix.
    As is the case with Marsanne, another 6 to 8 years from vintage will see further richness and complexity develop.
    Pour yourself a glass of 'Coueslant' 2018 Marsanne and raise a toast Francois.
