Marie-Courtin Extra Brut Allegeance Rose 2013


“The 2013 Rosé Allégeance, 100% Pinot Noir, is powerful and authoritative in expression, with plenty of depth. Some rough edges remain, however, including volatile acidity that is on the high side. Zero dosage. Disgorged: May 2018. Drinking window: 2018-2022. 89 points

Dominique Moreau is a true original. Imbued with tremendous character and personality, her wines are among the most compelling in Champagne. Biodynamic farming, minimal handling in the cellar and bottling with no dosage are some of the signatures that inform these deep, often stark, pure Champagnes. Marie Courtin fans will notice the addition of a new wine, the Présence Sans Soufre, a Pinot Blanc/Chardonnay blend that is terrific in its first release. Unfortunately I was not able to taste the 2016 Resonance or 2014 Efflorescene, as the wines aren’t released yet.These are not always easy wines, but the time to explore them is always handsomely rewarded.”

Antonio Galloni, Vinous (11/18)
