Efflorescence Blanc de Noirs
Top 6% wine in the world
Blend: 100% Pinot Noir
From: France, Champagne AOC
By: Dominique Moreau @ Champagne Marie-Courtin
Fresh with a hint of apricots and peaches, Efflorescence Extra Brut is a delicious champagne from the Domaine Moreau, an organic vineyard in the celebrated Champagne-Ardenne region of France. Here, pinot noir grapes grow on forty year old vines tended by vigneron Dominique Moreau natural care.
The Domaine Moreau has been in the Moreau family for 100 years. Dominique Moreau, the current owner, has lived and breathed viticulture all her adult life, either out on the land tending vines or teaching viticulture at a local school.
This champagne is named for Dominique’s grandmother, who worked the Domaine alone during the First World War. The grapes are harvested by hand and left whole for fermentation in enamelled vats with wild yeasts. The champagne rests on racks for three years.
