Wine Region: Champagne - France
Grape: 100% Meunier.
Tasting notes: "Coulon's salmon-onion colored NV Rose de Saignée Rosélie is pure Pinot Meunier and offers a very clear, aromatic bouquet of perfectly ripe red fruits. Round and intense on the palate, this is an elegant, wide and generous yet dry and piquant rosé with a clear, fresh and salty finish. Pretty complex and fine, with a long, well-structured finish, this should be great with smoked salmon or red fruit desserts that are not too sweet." Stephen Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate
Expert Rating: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 91/100.
About the winery: Champagne Roger Coulon has produced Champagnes in Vrigny, in the Montagne de Reims since 1806. For eight generations, the Coulons have remained artisan growers and winemakers. Eric and Isabelle Coulon head Champagne Roger Coulon - a domain made up of 10 hectares of vineyards spread across five villages and 100 parcels of classified Premier Cru land. Their vines are 40 years old on average, and their parcel, Les Linguets, has the unusual distinction of being planted with non-grafted vines. Eric and Isabelle practice sustainable viticulture. Each grape variety and each parcel are vinified separately in stainless steel vats or oak barrels, depending on the nature of the year’s harvest. Their champagnes are accomplished expressions of their terroir.
