Pale golden bubbly with a lively, herbaceous nose. Rich and layered on the palate, the bubbly shows of rich apple fruit, a hint of brown spice and a nice creamy note running all the way through. D&M Tasting Notes.
The NV Brut Sainte Anne is a gorgeous wine, as it so often is. Pliant and inviting, with superb textural richness, the Sainte Anne shows Alexandre Chartogne's style off to great effect. Dried pear, chamomile, mint mad dried flowers are some of the many notes that run through this super-expressive Champagne. This release is a 50/50 blend of 2015 and reserve wines, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, also in equal measure. Disgorged: December 2017. 91 Points Antonio Galloni, Vinous December 2018
This is a striking set of wines from Alexandre Chartogne, a young grower inspired by Anselme Selosse. Chartogne has begun converting his vineyards to biodynamic farming and is giving his wines less malolactic fermentation than in the past, which may explain, at least in part, why these wines seem more mineral-driven and less overt than in the past. Whatever the reason(s), the wines are simply beautiful and are all highly recommended. Antonio Galloni, Rober Parker's Wine Advocate.
RM or récoltant-manipulant. Driven by passion for their product, these producers bottle and sell their wines under their own labels. There is a potential for high quality combined with good value, and wines that might reflect the terroir of small plots of land rather than standardised blends. R stands for Récoltant ( the literal translation is "Harvester") M stands for Manipulant ( literally "Handler") These "grower" champagnes account for just under 3 percent of the total market.
