50 year old vines from 30 hectares. Farmed biodynamically and hand harvested.
Dominique Moreau named her estate after her grandmother, Marie Courtin, whom she describes as a “woman of the earth”. With the 2005 vintage, Dominique set out to produce a series of single vineyard, single variety, single vintage, zero dosage Champagnes from biodynamically grown grapes that are farmed & elaborated with meticulous care.
Spirituality plays an important role in her approach. Specifically she uses pendulums to aid in evaluating the evolution of the grapes on the vine, as well as the wine during elevage. She explains that the pendulum changes its natural rhythm & swing based on the energy emitted from a living being, whether person, vineyard, or wine.
Dominique’s compelling Champagnes are electric and chiselled, with an intense brininess & minerality at their core.
