Champagne Roger Coulon Brand Overview & Buy Champagnes Same Day Delivery


Eric and Isabelle Coulon (8th generation), now joined by their children Edgar and Louise, farm 11 hectares of vines in Premier Cru villages of Vrigny, Gueux and Coulommes-la-Montagne on the petit Montagne de Reims and the Grand Cru village of Chouilly in the Côte des Blancs. They farm the vineyards organically certified organic since 2019, with cover crops helping control humidity and reduce disease pressure, important since Meunier is the most susceptible grape to rot. They also have several agroforestry initiatives; and Eric Coulon, much like his brother-in-law Francis Egly of the famed Egly-Ouriet, believes in picking late in pursuit of full physiological maturity. They are justly proud of the history of the vineyard, which goes back to the cultivation of vines here in the 6th century, and also of their own long family history, with Edgar and Louise being the ninth generation. Eric learned the job with his grandfather, who has always stuck to the tried and tested methods of previous generations. They’ve always worked as naturally as possible, leaving grass cover in higher hillside plots to avoid erosion, ploughing most of the land, and using manures to bring limited natural fertilizers.

The vines are in around 100 parcels, so although they aim to press by parcel, some do end up going together. Around one third is vinified in tank, the rest in barrel. Both Edgar and Louise have trained in wine-making elsewhere, Louise at Domaine Ott, and Edgar with Philippe Pacalet and Fredéric Cossard in Burgundy, but also in England and Australia.

The family pick at high maturity, to give the wines a natural balance and feel, and the maximum dosage used is 3g/l. The second fermentation targets lower than normal, between 4.5-4.8 bar, where as 6 bar is more common across Champagne. The lower pressure gives a lower mousse and lighter perception of acidity. "Everything at Roger Coulon needs to be harmonious, that's what counts the most for me."
