Ein wunderbarer "easy to drink" Champagner mit viel Rasse und Frische.
Dies ist der Standard Cuvée von Chartogne-Taillet. It spends 3 years on its lees before disgorging. As with all their champagnes only the first pressing gets used, the second and third pressings are sold off together with any grapes from young vines. A wonderful champagne for any occasion. Some comments: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate rated this wine 89 out of 100 : "The NV Cuvee Sainte-Anne is a wonderfully, rich, creamy wine. There is a lovely richness and density to be found in the glass, but with air the wine's chalky minerality emerges to add complexity and length".
Serena Sutcliffe, one of the worlds greatest champagne experts wrote about this wine: "The Cuvée Sainte Anne had a lovely, fragrant nose and was very fresh and tempting. There is a lovely, soft, cushiony taste - a very accessible champagne, beautifully made."
FINE Champagne Magazine : "Pale lemon-green colour. Round and rich, toasty burnt sugar, tropical fruit nose. Still youthful and restrained on the palate. Stylish creamy mousse. Good degree of complexity and a long length. 90/100 points." The "Wine Spectator" October 2009: "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. 92/100 points."
Parker 's Wine Advocate rated this wine 89 out of 100 points : "Chartogne's NV Cuvee Sainte-Anne is an attractive entry-level offering with good mid-palate richness and excellent overall balance. The significant presence of red grapes gives the wine its expansive, broad shouldered frame.".
Stephan Reinhardt writes in Robert Parker's Wine Advocate this about Champagne Chartogne-Taillet: "I like the clear, pure, breathy, elegant and vinous style of Alexandre Chartogne, who has presented me a range of his lovely, mineral, single vineyard vines in early March. Among them a second Pinot Meunier from almost 60-year-old, ungrafted vines: Beaux Senses. As readers might know, the single vineyard Champagnes of Chartogne-Taillet are entirely based on vintages, but not declared as such. Only the cuvée Sainte-Anne is a classic blend of vineyards, varieties and vintages, and a perfect Champagne to discover the very dry but complex Chartogne style. Chartogne-Taillet's 12 hectares of more and more organic (or biodynamic) farmed vineyards are located in and around the village of Merfy, in the Montagne de Reims, where they grow on sandy, sandstone and tuff soils. Alexandre's experiments with concrete eggs for the fermentation pays off in the greatly pure and mineral Heurtebise Blanc de Blancs. Other containers are made of oak and stainless steel. All wines are fermented without the addition of cultured yeasts and the malolactic fermentation is also allowed to occur naturally. After the ageing process of eight to 18 months, the wines are bottled unfiltered. The dosage is no religion here, but tends to be rather low."
