What to expect


'Heurtebise' is a single-vineyard 100% a blanc de blancs from with 4.5 grams residual sugar making this an extra brut. The dosage will change every year for Alexandre's cuvees which reflects upon the years harvest. Cooler years normally need a little more dosage and the warmer riper years require less as natural grape sugars are readily available.

Loaded with minerality with waves of lemon-citrus-peel freshness. There is depth, volume and richness on the palate. The acidity dances on the tongue with plenty of energy and drive. It displays a super fine bead which gives a creaminess and has real 'horsepower' (no pun intended).

Food Suggestion

Generations of the Taillet family tender to the vines and ultimately turned their winemaking skills to the famous sparkling wine of the region. Established in Merfy in 1485, Chartogne-Taillet’s vineyards are located North of the Montagne de Reims, 8 kilometres from Reims, on the southern tip of the Massif de Saint- Thierry. At the heart of the Chartogne-Taillet philosophy is the search for the individual identity of their soils, allowing the wines to reveal an authentic and representative character unique to the village. After a ‘stage’ with Anselme Selosse, grower Alexandre Taillet has been running his family's estate since 2006.

We think that some Fish tacos with lime and chipotle mayo would work deliciously well. Give it a go. Champagne and Taco's!
