Tasting Notes

Using older wines as a base, the cuvée Saint Anne is integrated and silky - reminiscent of older Champagnes. Some of the base wine was aged in stainless steel while the majority (60%) was aged in old oak barrels resulting in a richness on the palate. In addition to this, the wine aged for 2 years on the lees before disgorgement.

Staff Pick Notes

“I do not feel good when I’m sure about something.” - Alexandre Chartogne This may seem like an odd sentiment to quote but it is the most elegant way to explain the wines of Chartogne-Taillet.

It is good that Alexandre Chartogne doesn’t like to be sure of himself because, “…that’s how you measure the hunger in a man’s soul.” - Terry Theise

Remember that “Non-Vintage” (NV) is not a dirty word here: NV Champagnes are blends of wines from the best growing seasons. But if you can find one, try a Champagne made by a Grower-Producer. These winemakers control every...

Chardonnay

From Champagne to Chablis, it's hard (not to mention unpleasant) to avoid this famous white variety. During a huge popularity surge beginning in the late 1980s, Chardonnay plantings have increased dramatically -- not only in California's wine country, with which the variety is nearly synonymous, but also in Burgundy (its original, Old World home) and just about everywhere else in the winemaking...
