Roger Pouillon New Champagne at Aroma Thyme

Roger Pouillon > Champagne > France
This is must try especially if are a Vueve Yellow Label Drinker.

Domaine Roger Pouillon is a small family -owned affair situated just north of Epernay and south of the Montagne de Reims, in the village of Mareuil sur Aÿ, which also boasts the presence of Billecart-Salmon. The Pouillon family is proud that their entire production is sold under their own label; neither grapes, wine, nor bottles are sold to négociants.

Fabrice Pouillon is a third generation champagne producer whose approach is inspired by his grandfather. His quest for self–perfection has led him to train at Sauternes and at Chassagne-Montrachet, where he learned to master vinifying in oak barrels.

He and his father practice what is called “culture raisonnée", an approach close to organic farming that eschews the use of chemical fertilizers, defoliants, and fungicides. Grass is allowed to grow between grape rows and the earth is turned periodically in order to encourage bacterial proliferation and diversity, which is eventually reflected in the expression of “terroir” in their champagne. Since 2003 Fabrice has begun to experiment with biodynamic methods on a few selected parcels of vines.

Champagne Brut - Cuvee de Reserve
This classic blend is made from 80% Pinot Noir , 15% Chardonnay and 5% Pinot Meunier.
A floral nose leading to fruits and nuts on the palate is balanced by fine bubbles and refreshing acidity. Gold medal winner at Macon.
Wine Spectator: “Rich & toasty, dense flavors of fig & honey...hints of citrus”
