Alexander Chartogne is a soft-spoken young man who has only recently taken the reigns at his familyandrsquo;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 domaineandrsquo;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 Cuvandeacute;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. Cuvandeacute;e Ste.-Anne is equal parts Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, plus 10% Pinot Meunier with 5 grams of dosage. Anticipated maturity: 2008andndash;2010.

Full-bodied and powerful, offering toast and malt aromas followed by honey, roasted almond and ginger flavors. Rich, this finishes dry, with a long aftertaste of honey and nut. Drink now through 2012.

Yeasty and exuberant, with a viscous texture enveloping apple, bread dough and citrus notes. This has a lively structure and a ginger aftertaste. Drink now.

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.

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.

This silky wine is dominated by minerality. Though the fruit is soft in the middle, the earthiness lends it tension. It becomes increasingly mouthwatering with air, developing redder fruit tones. For salmon roasted with chanterelles.

Between the sweetness of the fruit and the steely acidity thereandrsquo;s density in the middle of this wine. it tastes chalky and real. For bulots and other fruits de mer.
