Reviews 97 points Vinous "The 2016 Les Barres (Meunier) is laced with orchard fruit, dried flowers, spice and crushed rocks, all supported by veins of acid and saline minerality that lend energy. A Champagne of extraordinary nuance and precision, Les Barres is both deep and impressive and just so satisfying in 2016. (AG)"

Chartogne is rare in that he only sources grapes from his own 12-hectare property in Reims, and vinifies each parcel separately to showcase the unique nuances of each vineyard. A truly unique approach in the world of Champagne, where blending is the norm.
Since taking over the estate in 2006, Chartogne's wines have received critical acclaim for their minerality, complexity, creaminess, and richness. Whether it's his inspiration from Selosse or his own passion for winemaking, there's no denying the beauty of Chartogne's wines. As Antonio Galloni notes, "whatever the reason(s), the wines are simply beautiful and are all highly recommended" (WA).
