What to expect


Made by young Artisan, Alexandre Chartogne, this is his entry point cuvée with a 65 / 35 split of pinot noir and chardonnay and a low dosage of 4 grams per litre of sugar. It is fermented in a combination of stainless-steel tanks and concrete eggs, with natural yeasts and no filtration.

All the fruit is sourced from Merfy, which is in the north-west of Reims and is based on Thanetian sands and clays. Being more pinot dominant there are notes of stone fruit like red cherry and yellow plum.

The palate is bright with limey acids, chalky layers and a linear feel on the mouth with a savoury-almost-saline character. The finish is generous, flavoursome and highlights the terroir of the region.

About the house

About the house


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.
