Chartogne Taillet NV St. Anne ChampagneIn Fine Spirits
250 plus years of meticulous viticultural records for the family vineyards might engender a certain degree of complacency in most wine growers, but Alexandre Chartogne is a grower apart in Merfy. Blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes with a striking straw-yellow color. The nose offers aromas of honeysuckle, ripe white peaches, blueberries, almonds, fresh baguette, and Pink Lady apples. The palate is medium-bodied with flavors of Rainier cherries, green plums, and candied lemons ending with puckering acidity.
