Regarding the Champagne Chartogne-taillet Chemin de Reims Extra-Brut
Cuvée Chemin de Reims from Maison Chartogne-Taillet is a Blanc de Blancs champagne which is mainly elaborated from Chardonnay. It is dosed as an Extra-Brut (4-5 gr/l) in order to rebalance the bubble’s aggressiveness and vigor, without hiding neither fattening the wine and its density.
This champagne is sourced from a vine planted on very warm "red" sandy soil. This specificity together with its South/South-West orientation provides ample, tannic, and powerful wines.
This champagne requires a long raising period in barrels, as the wine takes time to complete its fermentation. It can take up to two years before bottling, therefore, it can be enjoyed 4 years later.
These few years spent in the cellar were very beneficial. It's a marvelous champagne of terroir. It never fails to impress. Don't wait and discover this very original Blanc de Blancs !
