Wine Region: Champagne - France
Grape: 33% Chardonnay, 33% Pinot Meunier, 33% Pinot Noir.
Tasting notes: "Officially non-vintaged but based on 2009, the NV Premier Cru Brut Nature Esprit de Vrigny is a blend that represents the best soils for each grape variety: one-third Pinot Meunier from sandy soils, one-third Chardonnay from chalky soils and one-third Pinot Noir from clay soils. The wine displays a clear, super fresh and subtle/delicate bouquet with great purity, vibrancy and noblesse. Pristine and crisp on the palate, with a refined and salty finish, this is a very filigreed and complex cuvée that reflects the terroir of Vrigny, which is virtually the sea. This is mineral and firmly structured, but at the same time, it's also fine. It is terribly long and pure, with an iodine-inflected and intense yet fresh finish. This is a great, very persistent, rye and iodine-flavored wine—endless and long like a wine from the Jura. Persistently salty. Encore and encore. The is the most subtle complexity you can get in Champagne. Guys, I love it!" Stephen Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate
Expert Rating: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 94+/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.
