Based in the tiny hamlet of Polisot in the southern Cote des Bars region of Champagne, Dominique Moreau is producing some of the most dynamic and striking wines of the area. Naming her estate after her grandmother, Marie Courtin, Dominique has set out to craft Champagnes which emphasise how her specific terroir can be expressed in a given vintage. Her wines then are single vineyard and single vintage, made with meticulously grown fruit from biodynamically-grown grapes, see no dosage, and sulfur is used sparingly or not at all.

Présence is a unique blend of 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Blanc from the 2018 harvest. Fermentation and ageing occurs in epoxy lined tank, and this wine sees no sulfur before being disgorged in January 2021 with no dosage.
