The Producer

Jérôme and Valerie Coessens have been working since 2006 on a single vineyard named Largillier - a six hectare lieu-dit owned exclusively by the Coessens family for 5 generations. Located in Ville-sur-Arce, in southern Aube in the Côte des Bars, the chalk-clay soil in the plot is characteristically poor, but full of kimmeridge, like in the Grand Cru areas in Chablis. Upon taking over the family estate, Jérôme noticed different profiles within the plot, and subsequently subdivided the vineyard with ‘Mineral’, ‘Fruit’, ‘Flower’ and ‘Substance’ subplots. Part of the vineyard is also allocated to fellow winemaker Guillaume Selosse, who uses the grapes for his ‘Largillier’ champagne. The vineyard is planted with only Pinot Noir, and the grapes are harvested at different times for eight different cuvées, each expressing a unique nuance. The wines are vinified with a Burgundian sensibility, with single varietal, single vintage (except for the solera), for the wines to showcase purely the multi-facets of the terroir of Largillier.
