Rich and ample on the palate with terrific freshness, this is another gorgeous and deeply expressive Champagne from Dominique Moreau. The orchard fruit, crushed stone and floral notes are beautifully focused throughout. The saline-drenched finish only adds to the wine's considerable appeal.

  • Delivery Information

Old vines Pinot Noir grown on the same Kimmeridgean clay soils that one finds in Chablis. A rich muscular style of champagne from a single vintage, fermented with native yeasts and spending three years in racks "making its bubbles." Bottled with minimal sulphites added. No dosage either.

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.
