2004 L'Aérienne, Champagne Tarlant

The 2004 aérienne is gorgeous. There's a weightless richness to this fizz with notes of acacia and peach, and such a textured finish. Perfectly at home with food, and on its own, it’s a simply incredible wine from Benoit Tarlant.

TASTING NOTES

The Brut Nature 2004 L’Aerienne is a very pretty vintage Champagne from Benoit Tarlant. Time in bottle has given the wine a bit more textural depth and overall intensity than it showed last year. Chardonnay-infused flavors make a strong first impression, before the presence of the red grapes becomes more evident on the mid-palate. The 2004 finishes with striking freshness and delicacy, but without robbing the wine of its essential richness
