The traces of the wine growers in the family go back to 1490, with Nicolas Taillet, and Fiacre Taillet in 1540. By 1700, a second Fiacre Taillet, an erudite wine grower, was writing his memoirs recounting his lifework, as well as all the important events of the village, the family and his profession. The Chartogne-Taillet family continues this tradition of writing and savoir-faire inherited from this legacy of wine growing.
Chartogne – Taillet Chemin de Reims 2017
1.1ha of vines (planted in 1980, 1995, 2011) often worked under a natural cover crop to limit water excess and vines’ vigour. The iron-rich soil as well as S/SE exposure yield a full wine structured by tannins-like bitters. Aged in 350 and 600ltr barrels with regular top-ups to promote reduction and preserve the originality of this plot. Disgorged 05/21 – Dosage 6g/l.
