Origins

The Champagne Roger Coulon is a family Domaine rooted for over two centuries in Vrigny, a Premier Cru terroir on the Montagne de Reims. Looking toward the future, Isabelle and Eric Coulon are now assisted by their Children, Louise and Edgar. They perpetuate a significant environmental work initiated 20 years ago in their vineyard, as well as an important work of precision on the elaboration of their cuvees.

Today, the vineyard is certified organic. In winter, several sheep graze in the vineyards. Also, the Domaine works with agroforestry principles to enable the vines to be auto sufficient where the soil and the flora support each other for a happy and lively vine.

The 11ha vineyard is spread across 115 parcels in 1er Cru villages and one single parcel of Chardonnay in Chouilly Grand Cru on the Côte des Blancs. The average age of vines is 45 years old. -Importer Note

William Kelley, Wine Advocate Sep 2022

Disgorged in October 2021 with three grams per liter dosage, Coulon's 2013 Blanc de Noirs Millésime is a blend of ungrafted Pinot Meunier and old-vine Pinot Noir growing in sandy soils (which explains why the Meunier has been spared by phylloxera). Wafting from the glass with aromas of crisp golden orchard fruit, mirabelle plum, clear honey, freshly baked bread and buttery pasty, it's medium to full-bodied, pillowy and layered, with superb intensity without weight, racy acids and an attractive pinpoint mousse. Concluding with a long, intensely saline finish, this is a brilliant effort for this singularly underrated producer!
