Description: Currently run by brother and sister Edgard and Louise, who are in their twenties, the Roger Coulon estate has been around for about 9 generations. They are located in the Vrigny Premier Cru Village of Champagne where plantings are dominated by Pinot Meunier. The wines from the different parcels are all vinified separately and blended later. This level of attention I think makes for the incredible precision of the wines. No biting levels of acidity here but is instead really round and soft, making for a great wine to start with.
