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.

Champagne Tarlant

The Tarlants have been making wines in the Vallée de la Marne since 1687. There hasn’t been one generation skipped in over 300 years. Traditions run deep here, much to the benefit of this region’s history and future: the family continues to grow all seven permitted varieties in Champagne, and produce one of only five ungrafted wines in the whole region. With a focus on zero dosage, long ageing, and site expression, the terroir and the tradition of Tarlant are in the safe hands of brother and sister Benoit and Melanie Tarlant, who continue to drive forward this important, and brilliant, grower Champagne.
