Roger Coulon

House Roger Coulon is located north of Montagne de Reims in the village of Vrigny, and is the result of a long family history dating back to 1806

Isabelle and Eric Coulon are today at the helm of Domaine, accompanied by their children Edgar and Louise who represent the ninth generation. A vineyard that has always been run with enthusiasm and passion in the deepest respect for the land and the vines, giving birth to Champagnes resolutely apart.

An exceptional terroir combined with great expertise

House Roger Coulon is located on the village of Vrigny in Premier Cru north of Montagne de Reims. The vineyard has grown to 10 hectares of vines, which have been farmed using organic methods since 2022, as well as Agroforestry. In fact, the Coulon family takes to heart the pRéserver ecosystem reigning within their vineyards and the self-sufficiency of the soil that makes such harmony possible. Each grape variety flourishes here, including of course Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.

When it comes to vinification, the wines are made without chemical inputs, and are neither filtered nor fined. Maison Roger Coulon is currently validating a historic approach for the Champagne region, that of managing a vineyard in Premier Cru exclusively in a natural way.

Description Roger Coulon L'Hommée.

An ancient agrarian measure used in the past in Champagne, the Hommée represented the surface area that a man could work in a day in the vineyard, i.e. approximately 3.33a (333m2). This cuvée is elaborated from the historical and most emblematic terroirs of the vineyard.

Chardonnay (60%) and Pinot Noir (35%) constitute the blend of this wine. Exclusively from Premier Cru villages located on the Montagne de Reims between 150 and 230 m of altitude, on moderate slopes (between 5 and 15 °) facing East. The vines are 40 to 50 years old.

The wines are aged in small Champagne barrels or 1/2 muids for 10 months on the lees. Small proportion of reserve wines, aged in barrels.

A minimum of 5 years of ageing is necessary for the elaboration of this cuvée before being rested ideally 6 months before its marketing.

The attack is characterized by fine bubbles and a creamy foam. Fruity and vegetal notes of orchard fruits, dried apricots, lime blossom and spices seduce the nose. The taste buds are delighted by the intensity and the aromatic persistence. The elegance, the greediness, and the minerality of this vintage accompany an aperitif as well as a refined dinner (Langoustine of Brittany, scallops of diving, ravioles with black truffle of Périgord).
