Chartogne-Taillet Brut Heurtebise Blanc de Blancs 2016


Sold Out

“The 2016 Heurtebise, 100% Chardonnay, is stunning. Vinification in slightly larger 350-liter barrels suits this wine so well, as the wood adds texture but while allowing all of the translucency and energy of Chardonnay to come through. Lemon confit, crushed rocks, white flowers, white pepper and mint add a brilliant upper register. Over the last few years, Heurtebise has become one of the most coveted grower Champagnes, its small production disappearing quietly in the blink of an eye. The 2016 is a great example of why. Dosage is 5 grams per liter. Disgorged: November, 2019. Drinking window: 2020-2030. 95 points”
