A very flavorful, smokey Champagne from the Chartogne-Taillet families estate vineyards in the villages of Merfy, Chenay and St. Thierry. It is an outstanding value. Chartogne-Taillet focuses on the character and personality of their wine, not the advertising and marketing of a brand. The big houses cannot afford to make wines with this sort of individuality!
