Dominique Moreau makes some of the most soulful wines from a village in the Aube called Polisot, where the climate and soils allow for maximum expression of flavor without needing to interfere much at all in the cellar.

Marie Courtin

The estate named after her grandmother, Dominique produced her first vintage in 2005, setting out to produce wines through biodynamic principles. She sources from a parcel of 40-50 year old vines on a hillside of Polisot, mostly dedicated to Pinot Noir, though she has a tiny lot of Chardonnay as well. Overall, she is not dogmatic about winemaking, utilizing both barrique and stainless for her production. The philosophy is simple: single-vintage, single-varietal, single-vineyard wines, done her way.

Resonance and Efflorescence make up the bulk of the production, two Blanc-de-Noirs of 100% Pinot Noir with the difference being the fermentation vessels - the former in stainless, the latter in barrique. Barrique allows for a bit more exchange of oxygen, resulting in Efflorescence typically being a bit more approachable earlier in its life, and potentially longer life. Both carry no dosage after spending 3 years on the lees, and are expressive of the heavy limestone soils here, with the Efflorescence presenting a bit more orchard and stone fruits. The third Blanc-de-Noirs is called Concordance, which is unsulfured and a bit richer in style, tart red fruits hiding in between notes of flinty minerals.

The Blanc-de-Blancs are named Eloquence and Presence, with Eloquence being entirely Chardonnay, and Presence a blend of 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Blanc, the latter wine made without any added sulfur. Presence comes across more floral and zesty, while the barrel-aged Eloquence acts like a Meursault in its mineral tones and orchard fruits.

Following the theme, the two rosé wines are profound: Indulgence and Allegeance; both maceration-style, follow the same protocol, Indulgence the more mineral-driven, bright red-fruited style while Allegeance, though vinified in tank, sees no sulfur and is dense and full of both tart red fruits and deep spice.

Dominique recently started to experiment with amphorae as well, crafting both a Blanc de Blancs and a Blanc de Noirs in extremely limited quantities, both vinified in this fashion. The shape allows for the lees to be suspended, and adds texture as well, creating a wine that is even more open and appealing than the others.
