The latest estate of our Champagne selection has been a registered company in the region since 1806. They cultivate a total of 11 hectares of vineyards in the heart of Champagne, in the cosy village called Vrigny. The vineyard work is based on organic methods, but they consider it even more important that trees, shrubs and mixed flora live between the rows of vines, which is known as agroforestry.
They have a pure and easily recognisable style: with natural, typically oaky notes and thicker flavours, more restrained than usual bubbles (they work with lower pressure, 4.5 bar in the bottle, instead of the usual 6).
They harvest from Vrigny’s warmer vineyards, with chalky, sandy soil, for the Meunier-based blend. Some 90% of the base wine is made in special solera barrels. This type of barrel is common in Grower Champagne cellars, the required amount is extracted each vintage from them, and then the rest is made up with new wine. The new wine is mixed with the wines from past vintages, so the characters of several decades often come together.
It’s golden brown and juicy, the most noble mature notes, breadcrust, hazelnut and mushrooms appear beside the yellow apple and pear fruitiness. It’s medium bodied, and has lively acidity on the full palate.
It is currently managed by the 8th generation, Éric and Isabelle Coulon, who cultivate 11 hectares of grapes in the heart of Champagne, in Vrigny. Their style is pure, natural, typically with oaky notes and a denser palate, with more restrained bubbles than the usual.
