Chartogne-Taillet Brut Cuvée St. Anne




This is becoming very fine, and watch out; it's entirely different from its old apples-and-butter form, more oystery and chalky and ginger and talc, with the apple-butter thing skulking in the mid-palate. It's racy, on the tensile side. I'd be a lot happier with three more grams of rs, but you won't agree if you prefer a vigorously dry Champagne.

Wine SpectatorThis is quite firm and focused, offering a lively bead and flavors of lemon zest, fresh quince, anise and poached pear. Hints of vanilla and pastry linger on the chalky finish. Disgorged April 2012. Drink now through 2015. 1,050 cases imported.

Wine EnthusiastDark, rich and sensuous, this is a ripe Champagne, boasting pear and apricot flavors. Although the aftertaste appears dry, the richness gives it a very sumptuous mouthfeel, leaving a long, full aftertaste.
