Presenting the 2021 Burgundy En Primeur vintage release from Philippe Pacalet, alongside an ex-cellar retrospective tasting of Pacalet Burgundy & Northern Rhône library vintages. Not to be missed!
This year it gives Wine Source great pleasure to share this annual tasting with a dear friend of Pacalet; Champagne Roger Coulon. Eighth generation vignerons from Vrigny, Champagne, the Coulon family create cuvées of exceptional precision, expression and vinosity. Working alongside his father Eric, Edgar Coulon, who previously worked for Philippe Pacalet in Burgundy, has returned enriched with his experience and is keen to focus on fermentation and élevage in oak, using barrels of varying size, shape, and age in order to add texture and complexity to the wines.
Champagne Coulon is one of only a handful in the elite Trait d’Union, a collective of producers committed to expressing terroir and working as naturally as possible. The other members are: Egly-Ouriet, Larmandier-Bernier, Selosse, and Jacquesson – excellent company indeed.
They are indeed a very welcome new addition to the Wine Source portfolio and we look forward to launching them shoulder-to-shoulder with Philippe Pacalet.
” …vinous, intensely flavored Champagnes of considerable character…given the quality and consistency this visit revealed these wines will certainly find a place in my own cellar, and I warmly encourage readers to try them. “
