Marie Courtin Champagne Résonance 2019
'The Marie Courtin Resonance 2019 is a lovely Champagne made from grapes picked from vines that grow at the top of the slope where Dominique’s tiny parcel of vines lies. The vines that have been grown from cutting selected using the sélection massale process from existing vines on the property.
The wine was made from 100% Pinot Noir and hence is classified as a Blanc de Noir (namely a white wine made from red/black grapes). After being pressed directly the juice was transferred to tank where it underwent natural fermentation.
The secondary fermentation is carried out using yeasts that Dominique cultivates locally to preserve the effect of terroir rather than using commercial varieties.
The wine was disgorged in December 2021, no dosage was added and is rated as Extra Brut. The term Extra Brut can only be displayed on a Champagne label if it has a very low level of residual sugar in the range 0-6 grams of sugar per litre.'
