Marie Courtin Efflorescence Extra Brut Pinot Noir

  • $105.00


Dominique Moreau is a purist.  For the estate she named for her grandmother, she makes only single variety, single vineyard, single vintage wines with zero dosage from biodynamic vineyards.  It’s a challenging path for a newer Champagne house, but it’s one that Dominique believes can lead to a singular expression of wines that can evolve gracefully.  


Site & Vines: Harvested from massale selection vines 35-40 years in age from a single parcel located in Polisot (Cote des Bar). Harvested from the bottom of the hill where there is more clay.

Vinification & Elevage:  Vinified and fermented in used barriques. 

Yeasts cultivated from estate vines are used for both primary and secondary fermentations. Bottled with a no dosage disgorgement.
