Tasting Notes

"The NV Largillier Brut Nature is from the southwest-facing part of the lieu-dit, which is located on very old limestone soils. The wine opens with a highly pure and mineral, beautifully clear, fresh, complex and terroir-driven nose with some flint-stone aromas. On the palate, this is a beautifully round, elegant, highly finessed and well-balanced Côte des Bar with a long, intense, juicy and charming finish. This is a gorgeously pure, fine, fresh and complex Champagne of great expression.”

The Producer

Coessens Largillier

Jérôme Coessens family have owned vineyards in the village of Ville-sur-Arce for five generations but it was only in 2006 that he decided to start to produce Champagne under the Coessens label. Up to this point the family had grown grapes and sold them to the large Champagne Houses other than a very limited amount that was bottled by his father from 1972 to 1999.

The vineyards total 6.5 hectares but Jérôme chooses to use only one called Largillier for his Champagnes. These 3.36 hectares are solely planted with Pinot Noir vines approximately 35 years old. He soon realised that this sloping south-east facing vineyard produced grapes of different character depending on the part of the vineyard that they had been grown. Each of these 4 sub-plots is vinified separately, Jérôme will then decide whether to blend or not prior to a further period of ageing, almost always in stainless steel tanks.

The viticulture is environmentally driven. He tils the soil between the rows of vines in order to encourage deeper rooting and grows grass between the rows to control the growth of the vines. Jerome believes that the secret of creating great champagne starts in the vineyard with the vine itself. All the quality and the inimitable character of the terroir are to be found in the grapes.

In 2008 Jérôme constructed a new cellar and pressing facility which included a large investment in a state of the art Coquard PAI 8,000kg capacity press which allows him to contract press for other growers in the area.
