Champagne Marie-Courtin Résonance Extra Brut NV (2014) France
12% alcohol. Dominique Moreau runs the estate – her grandmother was Marie-Courtin. It’s 2 ha in the Aube, and all of the Champagnes are non-vintage, but she doesn’t use reserve wine. This wine is 2014. It’s from the village of Polisot in the south of the Aube, and this is Pinot Noir. Biodynamic farming, wild ferments, stainless steel first fermentation, zero dosage. Disgorged April 2018. This is bright and expressive with some herby hints and red cherry and plum hints, as well as apple and citrus fruit. There’s a lovely fruitiness here with a savoury, herb-tinged edge and nice balance. 92/100
