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.

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.

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.

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 (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. (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. The 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 wine's 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.

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.
