Gert Crum visited Jérôme Coessens, but had to stay a little longer …
The family of Jérôme Coessens (1972) is originally from Flanders, but his grandfather was born in France in 1906. He produces 8 different wines from the Largillier vineyard, where he is the sole owner. Largillier is therefore a monopole – no one else produces wine from this lieu-dit.
The character of Champagne Coessens can be summed up in one word: Exclusive!
The soil in LARGILLIER is a combination of clay and limestone.
It’s poor soil that provides little nourishment for the vines, but that, in turn, promotes excellent maturity in the grapes and gives them all the potential for truly great wines. A taste that’s pure and that speaks of its terroir..
