Reviews 95 points Wine Advocate "Disgorged in September 2020 and derived from the 2016 vintage, the newly released NV Extra-Brut Couarres is a blend of 60% Chardonnay with a balance Pinot Noir. Evoking notions of peach, pear, white flowers, almond paste and spices, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy and gourmand, with a deep core of concentrated fruit, tangy acids and a pinpoint mousse. It's an appealingly gastronomic Champagne that will be hard to resist out of the gates. (WK)"

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.

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).
