Champagne Marie-Courtin Condordance 2016

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. Concordance comes from a single parcel of pinot noir planted in 1968, and has no sulphur added (one of the few sans souffe Champagnes). My bottle was disgorged in 2020. Rich yet nimble, this carries wild cherry, brioche, lemon peel over a deep chalky base, laced with a salty, savouriness, and finishing with a burnished bergamot note. Quite serious, and moreish, this is a striking, vinous, characterful, and contemplative champagne.Tasted: 19 November 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 167.00 private wine shops Producer: Champagne Marie-CourtinDistributors: Sedimentary Wines
