Chartogne Taillet Cuvee Sainte Anne Brut MV

Chartogne Taillet Cuvee Sainte Anne Brut MV

50% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Meunier. Alexandre Chartogne a bonafide superstar in Champagne. He’s a singular winemaker, producing some of the most exciting wines in the region. Alexandre is always exploring, thinking and dreaming about what’s possible, connecting his philosophy to farming and winemaking.  Anyone who has listened to Alexandre can feel the sense of exploration and curiosity he brings to his work. After assuming control of his family's winery in 2007, he implemented the goal to respect the soil populations as much as he can. His work is followed by Claude and Lydia Bourguignon, the two foremost experts on soil microbiology, as he does not use chemicals, herbicides, insecticides while ploughing half of his vineyards with his horses. Most of the work is made by hand as Alexandre believes that the transmission of terroir comes only through careful work in the vineyard. This champagne from the village of Merfy and is full of character, solid in structure, and silky enough to glide across the tongue. A classic.

Tasting Notes
"The latest release of the NV Brut Sainte Anne is a blend of equal parts Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, based on the 2015 vintage, and it was disgorged in April 2018. This iteration of Chartogne's entry cuvée is especially charming, wafting from the glass with notes of waxy lemon rind, almond paste, elderflowers and spices. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, broad and fleshy, with a generous core of tangy fruit, ripe acids, a refined mousse and a long, flavorful finish. Despite its charm, this is also among the more intense, concentrated renditions of Sainte Anne that I can remember tasting, and it comes warmly recommended." - William Kelley
