2015 Rosélie Rosé Champagne, Roger Coulon
Eric and Isabelle Coulon are the eighth generation of the family to make wines here, from their 10.8 hectare estate in Vrigny, on the Montagne de Reims. They farm with an uncommon closeness to the land, ploughing the soils and eschewing chemical intervention in both the vineyard and cellar. They favour long ageing and slightly lower pressure than the norm in Champagne (5 bars as opposed to 6), so the wines have a creamy, moussy texture. This rosé is 100% Pinot Meunier from old vines planted in Vrigny and Gueux. They use a short maceration to extract a pretty copper hue and the wine has a peppery, red fruit character which marries well with the creamy style.
