    Description

    Dominique makes several cuvées, but the bulk of her small production is split between her cuvées Résonance and Éfflorescence (ask us about them) the former fermented in stainless steel and aged for 24 months, and the latter is fermented in used barriques, followed by 36 months ageing.

    In addition to the three Blanc de Noirs, Dominique produces tiny amounts of a Blanc de Blancs with this cuvée Eloquence (barrel-aged Chardonnay), and another called Présence (Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc), along with two macerated Rosés known as Indulgence and Allégeance (zero sulfur).

    The style of her wines is electric and chiselled, with an underlying power from both her viticultural practices and the terroirs and varieties that she exploits. These are spectacular wines at the table as they combine multiple vectors of complexity, power and delineation that all play off each other depending on the dishes they are served with.
