Type: Sparkling Wine | Country: France | Region: Champagne | Varietal: Blend-Champagne | Vintage: NV
Aged for five years prior to disgorgement; an equal blend of Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay, the last of which is barrel aged for seven months; selected from vineyards in Vrigny and Pargny; this cuvée is yeasty and rich with a bold expression of terroir and is named for the ancient measure of vineyard work performed manually by a single person in a single day.Eric and Isabelle Coulon are the representatives of the eighth generation of the Coulon family to be engaged as recoltant-manipulants, producing Champagne from Vrigny and the surrounding villages in the northwest corner of the Montagne de Reims. Since 1806, this family has gradually increased its holdings so that there are now 10 hectares under vines, almost all located within the 1er Cru rated villages of Vrigny, Coulommes and Pargny, about 10 kilometers distance from Reims.Production at Champagne Roger Coulon is approximately 90,000 bottles per year. The vineyards are planted 40% to Pinot Meunier, 30% to Pinot Noir and 30% to Chardonnay. The average age of the vines is 38 years, a rarity in Champagne where old vines, and the limited production that is the result thereof, are often considered a curse rather than a blessing. Further, the vineyards are planted by the selection masalle process rather than with modern clones. No herbicides are used and harvest is done manually. The juice from the red grapes is fermented and aged in stainless steel but much of the Chardonnay is fermented in small oak barrels (not new). Only the natural, indigenous yeasts are used.
