Tarlant Brut Reserve Champagne

SKU #1002034

This wine is creamy and rich but still light and refreshing. The scores of dancing bubbles invite you to come back for more. It has primary fruit flavors and warm bread aromas to charm you, and the length to convince the pickiest Champagne critics. Tarlant is one of a handful of "cult" producers in Champagne, but unlike most other "cult" producers, they have been around for awhile - since 1687. This wine is a blend of 2005, 2004 and 2003 with the two older vintages stored in wood vats prior to bottling. The varietal blend is one-third each Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. All of the fruit comes from hillside vineyards in Oeuilly in the Vallee de la Marne. The Tarlant family uses organic practices in the vineyard - but they are very coy about calling themselves organic, no doubt due to the family's prominence in the vignerons association in Champagne.

My pick for the holiday (or any day) champagne. Really great juice here. It's got the broad shoulders of a classic rich champagne but is also lively and refreshing as well. It's a third chard, pinot noir and pinot meunier so it's very well balanced. Delicious!

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Champagne

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose. View our bestselling Champagne.
