What to expect


Some like it rich and spicy! We love champagne that shows great expression and energy. This 100% Pinot noir is from a single vineyard site called 'Les Orizeaux' and displays all that oyster-shell like salinity, nervy citrus and overlaid with spice and vanilla. This cuvée is full-bodied and flavourful yet it retains a high level of finesse.

Technical notes: 'Les Orizeaux' vineyard is sand over chalk bedrock and was planted in 1961. Older vines produce less fruit, yet with more concentration and intensity. Vinified and aged in oak barrels, it was disgorged in July 2017 and bottled with 3.5 g/l dosage.

Only 2200 bottles produced

Food Suggestion

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.

We suggest pairing this beautiful wine with fresh sushi and sashimi.
