Chartogne-Taillet 2011 Heurtebise

Bottle

Composition

A vintage blanc de blancs or 100% chardonnay champagne from 35 year old vines on the lieu-dit Heurtebise; a south-facing vineyard of calcareous sandy soil composition. Mostly vinified in multi-aged oak barrels with a small portion in concrete egg, there were only 2000 bottles made. It was disgorged in July 2017 with 5.5g/L dosage.

Taste

Intensely mineral with a generous and layered palate suggesting stone fruit and citrus, the finish is long, dry and complex.

Food match

A lip-smacking apéritif or perfectly paired with kingfish and lime carpaccio at the table.
