Grower Champagne – small producers, superb quality, great value
Marie-Courtin is a very young operation: winemaker Dominique Moreau has only been making wine since 2006. Based in Polisot in the Aube, Marie-Courtin has a tiny 2.5 hectares of vines which are grown organically with some biodynamic preparations. She only makes 2 cuvées – Resonance and Effloresence.
This is Extra Brut in style. A vinous style of champagne, rich and expressive. Very dry but full of flavour – braeburn apples.
Grapes: 90% Pinot Noir, 10% Chardonnay/Pinot Blanc
