Marie-Courtin Extra Brut Efflorescence 2017


In Stock

“The 2017 Extra Brut Efflorescence (100% Pinot Noir) displays good depth texturally and lovely persistence, but I would like to see more focus on the aromatics. Then again, this is a 2017. A slightly forgiving palate is required to fully appreciate this. Zero dosage. Disgorged in March of 2023. Drinking window: 2023-2029. 91 points

Proprietor Dominique Moreau has made compelling Champagnes for a number of years now. Early efforts were deeply intriguing but also, at times, marked by stark austerity and angular lines. These new releases suggest greater finesse, nuance and purity than in the past, which is, of course, great to see. As always, the Marie Courtin Champagnes are done in adherence with sustainable farming practices and low intervention methods in the cellar, with no minimal to no dosage or added sulfur. The best wines in this range are truly unforgettable.”
