Dominique Moreau's first Blanc de Blanc blend combines Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc grown in the unique kimmeridgian and portlandian soils of the Aube. This zero dosage, no sulfur added cuvee is rich and racy and has a commanding "presence", if you will, just as we have come to expect from this rising star.

Winemaker Dominique Moreau named her estate, Marie Courtin, in honor of her grandmother whom she describes as a “woman of the earth”. The aspiration of this winery goes beyond expressing terroir but are instead guided by a spirituality that’s kept close at hand. Much like the Burgundian philosophies that drive many of today’s exciting Côte des Bar producers, the focus here is on single vineyard, single vintage, single variety, no dosage Champagnes. Sélection Massale is employed to naturally keep the yields low.
