Tradition Tarlant is a magnificent food champagne, marked by the dominance of black grape varieties, which give it complexity, power and maturity of taste. On the eyes, it is bright but has a warm yellow robe that is mousse fine and intense. On the nose, it has a seductive bouquet of ripe fruits. Generous and powerful with aromas of mirabelle, grilled almond and warm apple. The mouth opens out in remarkable liveliness and length. Round and structured, with hints of honey cake and of caramel, this champagne pleases many a sommelier. The perfect food champagne, for intimate dinners and epicurian meals. A feast when served with local snails.
The labels of the wines from this family run estate, one of the most dynamic in Champagne, show their origins - Champagne in its purest form.
At the heart of the left bank of the Marne Valley, Benoit Tarlant is gradually taking over from his parents the 14 ha vineyards. He cultivated this vineyard with care, using only organic fertilisers. His vinegrowing is painstaking, perfectly adapted to the mosaic of different soils and subsoils with flint-bearing sand, through clay and limestone to pure chalk.
A real policy of vintages has been adopted and like the very best Champagne houses, the Tarlant only release their wines at their peak after eight to ten years cellaring.
