N/V Zéro Brut Nature, Champagne Tarlant (2012 Base Vintage)
The Tarlant family have been proudly growing grapes in the Vallée de la Marne since 1687. Their cellars are set in the village of Oueilly, and here brother and sister team, Benoit and Melanie Tarlant, have contributed a significant slice to Champagne's history (custodians of rare varieties and practitioners of long lees ageing). Their wines offer exceptional value for money to boot, particularly given the length of ageing they didecate before release. The Zéro Brut Nature is the signature cuvée of the Tarlant family, and the current release, based on the 2012 vintage, could not be a finer example of the quality of craftsmanship found in their wines. It is tight, chalky, vinous feeling, with the scent of green apple and the crunch of fresh acidity. Its six years ageing in bottle before disgorgement adds depth and creaminess. Blind, you'll trip over yourself saying its Krug. If we had a 'house' grower champagne, this would be it.
