Champagne Marie-Courtin Résonance 2014

Champagne, FranceThe Domaine is run by the feisty and energetic Dominique Moreau and is named for her Grandmother Marie Courtin. The estate covers about 2 ha in Polisot, near the Seine River in the southern Aube, and is planted to mostly pinot noir. She farms biodynamically, ferments natively, ferments and ages in stainless before transferring to bottle for secondary ferment, and bottles with zero dosage. This cuvée is from 40+ year old vines, and was disgorged in April 2018. There's a slight oxidative kiss to the textural red fruit, led by cherry and braced with rhubarb, cranberry, raspberry brioche to a lingering red currant finish. More savoury and earthy than fruity, and an authentic look at pinot noir in the Aube.Tasted: 02 August 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
