Easter is coming: we encourage you to make your selection early to ensure you've the right wines to enjoy over the holiday weekend.
This is a new release from Champagne Tarlant, replacing the higher dosage Brut Réserve. The Extra Brut has just 3g/l residual sugar, much closer to Benoît and Melanie’s preferred dry style of Champagne. Their wines have all the textural depth of flavour you could want without the softening dosage sugar, thanks to their long ageing before release. Although this is their ‘entry level’ cuvée, it has the magnificent 2015 vintage at its base - notable not only for the inherent quality of that vintage, but also in comparison to most grandes marques who are already on to the 2017 or 2018 base wines in their non-vintage blends. It’s a blend of 51% Pinot Noir, 34% Pinot Meunier, and 15% Chardonnay from the Tarlant’s vineyards around Oeuilly. It was disgorged in September 2020, so enjoyed not only almost 5 years ageing sur lattes, but also a further 15 months in bottle before release in early 2022. It is chalky, chiselled, mineral, and moreish. And it offers a brilliant level of quality, and huge character, for its price.
