Marie-Courtin Extra Brut Presence 2019


In Stock

“The 2019 Extra Brut Présence Sans Soufre is deep, fleshy and super-expressive. A blend of Pinot Blanc and Chardonnay, the Présence is very refined, with lingering aromas of lemon confit, marzipan and white flowers. This shows great depth along with the finesse that is increasingly a signature here. Bottled with no dosage. Disgorged: December, 2022. Drinking window: 2023-2031. 94 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.”
