Champagne Marie-Courtin Résonance 2015

Champagne, FranceChampagne Marie-Courtin is run by the feisty and energetic Dominique Moreau and is named for her Grandmother. The estate covers 2 hectares in Polisot, near the Seine River in the southern Aube, and is planted to mostly pinot noir. She farms biodynamically and ferments native in stainless before transferring to the bottle for secondary ferment. The wines are bottled with zero dosage. This cuvée is from 40+-year-old vines and was disgorged in June 2019. Pristine and detailed, yet minimalist, this effortlessly and quietly convinces fine cherry, red currant, wild raspberry, rhubarb along a slender, patisserie lined palate. There's a lovely grip along the sides, reflective of pinot, trailing this to a lingering red currant kiss. Quite a serious, vinous wine, able to handle a myriad of foodstuffs, and delightful solo as well.Tasted: 15 November 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 85.00 private wine shops Producer: Champagne Marie-CourtinDistributors: Sedimentary Wines
