Dominique Moreau is a self-effacing woman and instead of putting her own name on her labels, she elected instead to use her great-grandmotherand#39;s, an inspiration for her as a andquot;woman of the earth.andquot; She is certainly very close to the earth herself, working painstakingly and organically in the vineyard and using native yeasts for her fermentations. Sheand#39;s also keenly aware of all of the energies that surround her (mostly Pinot Noir) vines and her cellar, and is the first that weand#39;ve ever heard of to use a pendulum to gauge certain natural rhythms around them. This may sound a bit mystic to you, but the proof of the success of her approach is in the bottle for us. We were floored by her Champagne the first time we tasted it, and we have yet to pour it for anyone who has not been shocked by its quality and singularity. These are not shy bottles of Champagne, but they are also not defined solely by richness or power. There is an electricity and rock-solid core of minerality at play in Dominiqueand#39;s wines that give them impressive depth, texture and what can only be described as an extra gear. We love these wines and we could not be more excited to share them with you today. Dominique suggests serving these in a normal-sized wine glass, and we wholeheartedly agree. A decant would not be out of order if you plan to share it with many people.
