Dominique Moreau named her estate after her grandmother, Marie Courtin, who she describes as a woman of the earth. Dominique Moreau fashions some fantastic Champagnes from the Aube were Pinot Noir thrives. Committed to Bio-dynamic farming principles, she is the amount the elite of the region rivaling the wines of Cedric Bouchard, Vouette Sorbee, and the like. Her production is small in terms of Champagne, with under 50,000 bottles yearly produced. The transparency and vineyard character of her wines is quite exceptional, and the two wines featured today are both excellent and her current releases. We are happy to be able to showcase both this rare beauty at USA low pricing!
Efflorescence Extra Brut (2014) Comes from Pinot Noir vines that are farmed Bio-dynamically from a single vineyard in Polisot (Cote de Bar), the vineyard is predominately clay and limestone with 40+-year-old vines. This Champagne is fermented with natural yeasts in the steel tank before it spends about three years on the lees. There is no dosage here, but the richness and focus of the 2014 vintage shine thru and gives this a little more fat than typical, which makes it more easily accessible out of the gate and pairs perfectly with now dosage.
