This is a multi vintage blend from a solera that ranges from 1996 to 2000, and is made up of half each Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The nose shows the extended ageing with light hazelnut, cream, desiccated red apple, doughnut peaches, clotted cream and a dusting of minerals. The palate is moderate in weight with clotted cream, hazelnuts and a light mix of golden and red apples. There is a light white raspberry and dusty cedar on its long finish. This is truly a great Brut Nature. 15 years on less, disgorged December 2017 D&M Tasting Notes
Pierre Tarlant, began wine cultivation in 1687 in Burgundy. To name all of the members of the Tarlant family would be like the beginning of the Old Testament, but we feel it important to highlight a several significant Tarlants. In 1780 as our Revolutionary War entered its second phase Louis Tarlant and his wife went to live in Oeuilly in the Marne and began to plant vineyards. In 1911 Louis Adrien Tarlant took part in the "Champagne Revolution” to recognize the AOC worldwide. Louis, as Mayor of Oeuilly, and his colleagues were instrumental in specifying the AOC Champagne area in 1927.
Louis Adrien,with his wife’s help, also the first to launch a cuvee Tarlant, named Carte Blanche. Today the 12th generation of the Tarlant family is learning the ropes with Benoit spending time in the cellar and learning winemaking with his father and Melanie working the world marketing and selling the products of their family’s cellars.
Their holdings are spread across 55 different parcels in four villages. The Tarlant family has a deep respect for their land, and utilizes non-fertilizer interventions to improve their land.
