Where and How?
From Dominique's biodynamically farmed 40-year-old massal selection Chardonnay vines.
The grapes are gently pressed the juice ferments naturally and ages in two amphorae — one clay, one sandstone. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
The Winemaker: Marie Courtin
Dominique Moreau chose to name her winery ‘Marie-Courtin’ in memory of her great-grandmother. She says, “It was my great grand-mother’s name, who, during the First World War, was a woman who worked on
the land, and who farmed using a horse, while the menfolk were on the front, therefore I wanted to pay homage to these women of courage and of strength”.
She has become celebrated worldwide for her natural approach to farming wines and making Champagne as naturally as possible. These are beautiful bottles with soul.
