Champagne Chartogne-Taillet Sainte Anne Brut NV

Champagne, FranceThough it changes from year to year, Cuvée Sainte Anne Brut is equal parts chardonnay/pinot noir, sourced from the village of Merfy in the Montagne de Reims. It is the only grower champagne from the village and the family has wine growing roots back to 1485; the rest of the vineyards in Merfy are claimed by co-ops or go to larger houses. This is 60 percent from 2014 vintage, and 40 percent from 2013, disgorged December 2016. Farmed organically and wild fermented there’s no filtration that gives an earthy wildness to this oxidative-leaning champagne. Earthy, mushroom, brioche, toasted almond on a dense core of red apple and finishing with fine, nutmeg dusted spicing. Serious, striking, earthy style, with a slight oxidative swing.Tasted: 01 May 2017Tasted by: Prices:
