Chartogne-Taillet 'Chemin de Reims' Extra-Brut

A Chard from an iron-rich parcel, it doesn’t exactly replace the Heurtebise, but that wine is only available in generous enough
years when it can be separated; the 2016 is all in the Ste-Anne. Deg 12/2018, this is a fascinating original Champagne, like no
other BdB I’ve ever tasted. Oak in obedient proportion, mineral is earthy, sophisticated in an unpretentious way.
