ANTONIO GALLONI 94 POINTS - "Alexandre Chartogne's new releases are just magical. Tasting them made me feel like I was in the winery. There is a purity to the wines this year that hasn't always been present in the past. Stellar wines abound in this range. Take your pick."
"The 2016 Les Couarres, 100% Pinot Noir, is a rich, boisterous Champagne. Baked apple, plum, chamomile, dried flowers and lemon confit race across the palate in a Champagne of uncommon depth and resonance. All the elements fall into place so effortlessly. Dosage is 5 grams per liter. Disgorged: January, 2021."
