Chartogne's rosé, made from a blend of equal parts chardonnay and pinot noir grown exclusively in sandy soils, has become steadily more refined and sophisticated over the past few years.

This release, which is mostly from 2015 (including about ten percent of red wine from Orizeaux), continues this trend, showing a taut, succulent burst of red cherry and strawberry fruit anchored by a subtly saline complexity of soil.

Its sleek, suede-like texture adds to its sense of stylishness, and it balances all of its components superbly well, feeling both intellectually serious and deliciously easy to drink. Peter Liem

Technical details: A blend of all three grape varieties. Bottled in 2016 and disgorged in September 2019 sitting at 7-8 g/l dosage 

Generations of the Chartogne-Taillet family tender to the vines and ultimately turned their winemaking skills to the famous sparkling wine of the region.

Established in Merfy in 1683, 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 Chartogne has been running his family's estate since 2006.
