“The 2015 Marie Courtin Efflorescence is ample and resonant in feel. Plum, cherry, spice and ginger meld into a deep core of Pinot fruit that continues to flesh out with a bit of time and aeration. There’s terrific depth, density and creaminess here, not to mention tons of sheer personality. No dosage. Disgorged: June, 2021. Drinking window: 2021-2028. 94 points

Dominique Moreau presented a stunning range of Champagnes this year. The 2016 Extra Brut Sans Soufre Présence and 2015 Extra Brut Rosé Indulgence are both positively stellar. A focus on old vines and no dosage led some of the early wines here to feel a bit stark and austere. That is seldom the case these days. Biodynamic farming, natural ferments, aging in neutral vessels and very low to no sulfur are central to the philosophy here. There is something very human about these wines. They aren’t always perfect, but they are always interesting.”
