Champagne Marie Courtin, Blanc de Blancs Amphora 2018
60% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Blanc, 5% Arbanne
Dominique Moreau has ventured into the foray of amphora vinification and ageing. The Blanc de Blancs is a unique blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and Arbanne, all grown in the kimmeridgian-centric soils of Polisot. The resulting wine is punctuated with clean and textured, bursting with fresh minerality and lovely refreshing salinity
Grapes for the cuvee are grown in the Polisot Village in Cotes des Bar. The grapes are selected according to what is known as massal selection which is a breeding technique that aims to preserve their intra-varietal genetic variability and to obtain highest quality grapes in order to keep intact the distinctive features of the vineyard and its relationship with terroir.
Dominique Moreau was born and bought up in the champagne region. She explains that there, everyone had a piece of land and also vines- it was the norm. Her great-grandmother, Marie Courtin, farmed her land herself, using a horse, during the First World War while the menfolk were away on the front. Dominiques estate is located on land that was always been owned by her family, but they had rented it out to tenant farmers and she explains that, from the age of 18 years-old, she was always working on the land amongst vines somewhere. She worked part-time as a teacher in a professional viticulture school at the beginning of her adult working life, and spent the hours during which she was not teaching, farming vines. She took over the family estate in in 2000 when the previous tenant farmers took their retirement. She began converting her vines to organic farming in 2005.
