Champagne Roger Coulon, Winzerfamilie (RM) aus Vrigny
An excellent artisanal producer with complex wines for the demanding Champagne connaisseur !
The Coulon family is well known in La Montagne de Reims region and is part of the small artisanal producer association Trait’d’Union, to which also belong other top producers such as Selosse, Larmandier-Bernier, Jacquesson and Egly-Oriet. From their base in the charming village of Vrigny, Champagne Roger Coulon crafts some of the most authentic and complex wines available today and is living proof that great Champagne does not begin and end with the Big Brands, as anyone who has tasted a bottle of Roger Coulon can testify!
Since 1806, this dynamic family has been growing grapes in the La Montage de Reims region, and Edgar and his sister Louise Coulon represent now the ninth generation of the family to be involved in the production of quality Champagne.
Coulon's vineyards and beautiful wine cellar are pristinely maintained and their continuing success is a result of his monumental hard work, both in the vineyard and winery. Last year they chose to take the entire vineyard to organic production. Already for quite some time they produce natural wines with the absence of herbicide and pesticides, filtration, collage and the strict use of indigenous yeast from the vineyard. The Champagne is foreseen to benefit from the orgnaic label after a 3-year conversion period followed by ageaing in the cellar.
The Coulon family shows great pride in their old Pinot Meunier vines and their superb selection of artisan Champagnes, which show great richness, depth and terroir-based complexity. Annual production of app. 95’000 bottles.
