Exuberant and zesty, the Pinot Meunier grape's personality really shines in this champagne. Beautiful notes of honey, citrus peel, baked apples and pears in a baking spiced crust. Pair with rich fishes like tuna, salmon, fried chicken, shrimp dishes.

Produced from holdings in (3) premier-cru villages (Vrigny, Pargny, and Coulomme), “Heri-Hodie” (“Yesterday-Today”— in Latin) refers to the family’s long history as vignerons in Champagne, France and to the solera from which a significant portion of this cuvée is made).

Exuberant and zesty, the Pinot Meunier grape's personality really shines in this champagne. Beautiful notes of honey, citrus peel, baked apples and pears in a baking spiced crust. Pair with rich fishes like tuna, salmon, fried chicken, shrimp dishes.

The grapes used in this champagne are primarily Pinot Meunier (60%), with smaller amounts of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay (20% each). This release is a blend of 50% 2014-vintage wine and 50% wine from Eric’s solera (which he fills halfway with a new vintage each year, and which he began in the early 1990s). The resulting wine spent three years on its lees before disgorgement. It received a very small three-grams-per-liter dosage.

Eric and Isabelle Coulon are the 8th generation of the Coulon family working as recoltant-manipulants in the Champagne wine region of France. In other words, they grow the grapes in their own vineyards, make the Champagne on their own premises, and market it under their own label. The vineyards are located in mostly Premier Cru villages surrounding Vrigny (a Premier Cru), in the northwest corner of the Montagne de Reims. Vine age averages about 38 years, and all grapes are hand-harvested and no herbicides are used. They make six different cuvees.
