thus demonstrating that fine wines also involve synchronicity, the principle of harmony “linked to the invisible, almost imperceptible, something inexpressible”, as Sting sang with The Police.
Steeped in ancient savoir-faire, which they honour in the winegrower’s museum founded by Paul their father, Daniel and Frédéric Coulon revere manual work, conducted meticulously
from pruning to harvest. They also possess the exacting differences of the appellation’s thirteen varieties, which they preserve meticulously through deft coplantings derived from the estate’s oldest vines (dating back to 1902), and express in the cellar through the co-fermentations that fascinate them.
Daniel and Frédéric well know that, through grape varieties, the terroir is sending us a message that their cuvées are asking us to listen to and to taste.
