The 2004 Millésime Prestige l'Aérienne is "the answer to 2003," says Benoît Tarlant. "Everything was relaxed. It was a nice and happy year, with good yields but no hail and no storms." The white l'Aérienne blends 70% Chardonnay with 30% Pinot Noir and opens with a clear, concentrated bouquet of white and yellow-fleshed fruits along with citrus aromas and some ginger notes. On the palate, this is very generous and elegant yet pure and vital cuvée with a juicy Chardonnay character right now and lots of finesse. Still very young, the finish is pure, very salty, long and tensioned. Disgorged in February 2018. – Robert Parker
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.
