R. POUILLON BRUT VIGNERON 1ER CRU

The Pouillons have been growers in Champagne for centuries, but it wasn’t until 1947 that Roger Pouillon first established this Champagne house in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. In 1998, Roger’s grandson Fabrice joined the family business after studying oenology and gaining valuable work experience in Sauternes and Burgundy. Under Fabrice’s guidance the family’s Champagnes have gained increasing accolades and popularity. His most renowned Champagne, and a long time staff favorite, is the barrel fermented “Fleur de Mareuil”-a toasty, barrel-fermented masterpiece. We recently had a chance to taste that flagship bottle along side his newly introduced Vigneron cuvée. Both Champagnes are multi-vintage blends made with equal proportions of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The Vigneron is actually more intricate in its composition, as it is a solera-style blend of no less than ten vintages. As its base wines never see any oak, the oxidative components of the Vingernon are more discreet than those exhibited in the Fleur de Mareuil. The result is a rich but light-footed Champagne with a silky texture and a complex flavor of whole grains, red apples, biscuits and lemon curd. A bit of chalk and allspice embellish the Vigneron’s finish. Here then is a gorgeous Champagne that offers unsurpassed sophistication and poise for the money.

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.
