Coulon, Roger: Les Coteaux de Vallier

[English] Made of 20% Pinot Noir and 80% Chardonnay, single vineyard. Nice golden color with elegant sparkle. Wonderful complex (even a bit mature) scent of: apple, quince, wet hay, gooseberry, plum, slightly apricot, pineapple, lemon zeste, old oak and toast. Soft but mouthfilling texture. In the taste: orange, quince, more pronounced apricot, yeast and tart.

Coulon, Roger: Réserve de l’hommée

[English] Made of 1/3 Pinot Noir, 1/3 Pinot Meunier and 1/3 Chardonnay. Very light golden color with elegant sparkle. Fruity scent of: ripe Reinette apple, quince, pineapple and slightly some raspberry. Round, mouthfilling texture. I taste: quince, ripe apple, melted butter and some minerality. Nice balance. The long aftertaste is slightly nervous and is toasty.
