Roger Coulon : Brut Reserve de l'Hommee NV - 1 x 0.75cl ($64.80 per bottle)
The Brut Réserve de L'Hommée is a triumph of balance and precision.
L'Hommée is an ancient agricultural measurement equivalent to the surface of vines that a man could work in one day, roughly 3,33a (333m2).
The cuvée Réserve de l'Hommée has been created exclusively from terroirs which were once measured in this way.
It is a blend of 33% Pinot Meunier, 33% Pinot Noir and 33% Chardonnay from the Premier Cru terroirs of Vrigny and Pargny which has been aged on lees in oak barrels for 7 months.
After undergoing malolactic fermentation it is dosed at 6g/L and then enjoys a period of 5 years maturing in the Roger Coulon cellars before being presented.
