Marie Courtin Eloquence Extra Brut is a sparkling wine made with the Chardonnay variety in the AOC Champagne (France) by Marie Courtin.
Dominique Moreau set up her own winery in 2005 and named it after her grandmother Marie Courtin. The estate lies in the village of Polisot in the Côte des Bars, in the southern part of the Champagne region. They grow their vines with the aim of producing biodynamic sparkling wines from a single vineyard and a single variety. Taking a spiritual approach, she produces electric champagnes with intense minerality.
Marie Courtin Eloquence Extra Brut comes from a unique plot with clay limestone and kimmeridgian soil. These are 15-20 year old vines that are cultivated according to biodynamic principles and following a spiritual philosophy that uses an energy pendulum to check the state of the product, both in the vineyard and in the winery.
Once harvested manually, the Marie Courtin Eloquence Extra Brut grapes are fermented in used barrels with native yeasts. Then, following the champenoise method, the wine undergoes a second fermentation in the bottle.
Marie Courtin Eloquence Extra Brut is a very limited production, barrel-aged Blanc de Blancs. A champagne reminiscent of a Chablis with bubbles and an intense mineral character.
