Reviews 95 points Wine Advocate "Disgorged in November 2019 with 4.5 grams per liter dosage, the NV Extra-Brut Blanc de Blancs Heurtebise derives from a parcel defined by iron-rich sand. Offering up aromas of pear, orange oil, beeswax, fresh pastry and white flowers, it's medium to full-bodied, pillowy and incisive, with tangy acids, fine concentration and a long, penetrating finish. (WK)" 93 points John Gilman "(Based on the 2011 vintage) The nose is pure and complex, offering up scents of apple, pear, toasted almond, incipient creme patissiere, chalky minerality, smoke and just a whisper of vanillin oak in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full and rock solid at the core, with fine focus and mineral drive, elegant mousse, bright acids and a young, complex and impressively long and well-balanced finish. (JG)"

About Chartogne-Taillet

Alexandre Chartogne is considered to be one of the top young winemakers in the world of Champagne. His impressive background includes working with and learning from his mentor Ansleme Selosse, as well as inheriting over 300 years of family winemaking tradition at the ancient estate vineyard in Merfy. These experiences have undoubtedly contributed to his reputation as a master of his craft.

What sets Chartogne's wines apart is his deep respect for the terroir. 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. This is a rare 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).
