A graceful yet sinewy bubbly, exuding whole-grain bread, mineral, honey and citrus flavors. Well-balanced and on the dry side, with a firm structure and a long, mineral- and vanilla-tinged finish. Drink now through 2010.

A firm Champagne, offering tightly wound flavors of currant, blackberry and butter, with a hint of malt. The spicy acidity provides definition and cut, with a smoky thread lingering on the modest finish. Best from 2011 through 2014. AN - Wine Spectator Magazine 90 Points(a 50/50 blend of chardonnay and pinot noir; disgorged June, 2009) Pale yellow with an abundant mousse. Highly perfumed bouquet of white flowers, orange, lemongrass and smoky herbs. Complex, palate-staining citrus and pit fruit flavors are complemented by lemon verbena and fresh sage, with mounting back-end smokiness. Gains power with air and finishes with very good breadth and spicy persistence. - Stephen Tanzer 90 Points(basically a 50/50 blend of pinot and chardonnay with a pinch of pinot meunier; 80% 04, 20% 02 fruit; disgorged November, 2008). A moderately complex nose displays some yeast and a bit of age on the nuanced and layered nose of citrus and rose petal that introduces amply effervescent flavors that display excellent complexity on the lingering and, like the Rosé, sappy finish. However, the mouth feel is not nearly as refined or sophisticated. Still, this is better than the last release I saw. - Allen Meadows Burghound 90 PointsThe NV Brut Cuvee Sainte-Anne is a wonderfully rich, creamy wine that seems to be dominated by the significant presence of red grapes and a warm 2005 base vintage. There is lovely richness and density to be found in the glass, but with air the wines chalky minerality emerges to add complexity and length. The Sainte-Anne is equal parts Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with a dash of Meunier, 80% 2005 juice with the addition of 10% each 2001 and 2002. Disgorged: June, 2009. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2014. This is a striking set of wines from Alexandre Chartogne, a young grower inspired by Anselme Selosse. Chartogne has begun converting his vineyards to biodynamic farming and is giving his wines less malolactic fermentation than in the past, which may explain, at least in part, why these wines seem more mineral-driven and less overt than in the past. Whatever the reason(s), the wines are simply beautiful and are all highly recommended. - Robert Parker 89 Points

This is quite firm and focused, offering a lively bead and flavors of lemon zest, fresh quince, anise and poached pear. Hints of vanilla and pastry linger on the chalky finish. Disgorged April 2012. Drink now through 2015.

Finely knit, with tea rose and ground anise notes wafting through flavors of white raspberry, glazed apricot, pastry dough and lemon peel. Balanced and well-structured by mouthwatering acidity. Disgorged December 2012. Drink now through 2020.

Alexander Chartogne is a soft-spoken young man who has only recently taken the reigns at his familyrsquo;s domaine. Yet beneath the shy exterior lies a thoughtful, passionate winemaker who shows much promise. This small, family-run estate in Merfy farms 12 hectares of vineyards planted to Pinto Noir, Chardonnay and Meunier. The domainersquo;s vineyards encompass three distinct soil types: sand in the southern part of the village; then chalky terrains of various depths and lastly a clay and limestone mixture. Chartogne is gradually converting his vineyards to biodynamic farming. The NV Brut Cuveacute;e Ste.-Anne is mostly 2004, with the addition of 2003 reserve wine. This is a generous, easygoing Champagne that shows excellent depth in its fruit, with a long, elegant finish. It is a beautiful effort at this level. Cuveacute;e Ste.-Anne is equal parts Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, plus 10% Pinot Meunier with 5 grams of dosage. Anticipated maturity: 2008ndash;2010.

Bubbly is bubbly is bubbly, right? Not so! Step into the wonderful world of ldquo;grower-producerrdquo; Champagnes with Chartogne-Taillet. Unlike hugely marketed brand-name producers who buy their grapes from numerous growers, Chartogne-Taillet grows and vinifies all of their bubbly themselves, ensuring super-high quality control the whole way through. The result is beautifully-crafted, uniquely-styled Champagne that speaks of both the terroir and the winemakerrsquo;s artistry. And although the holidays are certainly a favorite time for fabulous fizzy, Chartogne-Taillet will have you craving Champagne for any olrsquo; occasion.
