Tarlant QV Discobitch Champagne

SKU #1046337

This is declassified Cuvee Louis (Tarlant's top of the line cuvée) that was made for a French pop band by the name of Discobitch. Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction. Luckily, the bubbly is anything but strange, and what a value. Discobitch is a blend of 1/3 Chardonnay, 1/3 Pinot Meunier and 1/3 Pinot Noir made from 2005 reserve wine. First fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel vats and aged in oak barrels. Dosage is 6 g/l Brut. Bottling was done in May 2006. In this Cuvee we find the freshness of Chardonnay and the richness of the Pinot. The texture is supple and elegant. It is fresh and crisp with some buttery and brioche notes. Bitchin' for parties.

It was love at first site (and sip). As a fan of anything disco or sparkling, when a six pack of this sequin-embellished, sparkling goodness first appeared stateside in 2009, Gary Westby pulled me aside to make sure I could have first dibs. Which I did. Not only does it make you want to party by just looking at it, but it's damn good Champagne - rich, intense and mouthfilling, with creamy layers and a wonderful toasty finish. One of my favorite K&L direct import grower-producer houses Champagne Tarlant has produced a small amount of Discobitch since 2009 as a tribute to the French electro-pop group of the same name whose hit single "C'Est Beau La Bourgeoisie" rocked the charts that year France. It's been my New Years, birthday, and any other festive celebration go-to ever since. Extremely limited in supply.

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.
