A rare Chardonnay based wine from this producer, made from 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir grapes. The grapes come from a single plot in the Coteaux de Vallier vineyard. Usually in this zone, red grapes are grown, so this is rare indeed. The winemakers employ used oak barrels to both ferment and age the wine.  The wine spends about 18 months on its lees prior to secondary fermentation in bottle. Disgorgement takes place after a minimum of 10 years aging on its lees.

Stunning depth and a blend of both the 2005 - 2006 vintages, there is only 1 gram per liter of dosage. Very layered with honey, smoke, vanilla, baked apple, citrus peel, pronounced minerality, and clean acidity.  Pair with fried or roast chickens, fish, even roast duck would work here.

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.
