Background

Champagne Tarlant, handed down from father to son in the art and passion of growing grapes and producing the famous Champagne wines since 1687, is situated close to Epernay on the hillside of the celebrated Marne Valley, on the territory of Oeuilly. There, the Tarlant family still perpetuates the tradition, now successfully in the hands of Jean-Mary Tarlant and his father Georges who elaborate their large range of prodigious Champagnes, especially those of the “nec plus ultra” range such as the Cuvee Louis Brut with its subtleties obtained during its long period in oak barrels.

Winemaking

Brut Zero, otherwise known as Ultra Brut or Zero Dosage, is a relative rareity in Champagne largely because it is so difficult to achieve the perfect balance in a wine made form grapes grown at the northern extremties of where viticulture is possible. The base wines for champagne are tart and sharp and after the secondary bottle fermentation is complete, they usually require a sweetening dosage to balance the wine out.
Tarlant's Brut Zero has no such dosage which, via the considerable skill of the winemaker, allows the fruit and the terroir to shine through. Thanks to their lower sugar content, Brut Zero styled champagne's contain fewer calories than most other wines and thus provide the perfect aperitif for those watching their waist line


Tasting Notes

The colour is golden with green reflections, Bubbles crystalline and sharp. The nose is intense, with the molten fragrances of white flowers (acacia, lime) and of Queen of the rennets. Original flavour of Chardonnay, Frank and very pure. The palate appears mineral and silky, with the nuances white fruits and the delicate flavours hazel nut and almond, very out of lace. Fermented exception as elegant as aromatic, its persistent freshness is single. Authentic and singular, this champagne d’esprit is appreciated at the time of a setting in particular mouth. A high-class wine with the flavours which agree to wonder with a refined shellfish kitchen.

Reviews

91 points, Stephan Reinhardt (Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate):
"The NV Bam! Brut Nature is a blend of 50% Meslier, 25% Pinot Blanc and 25% Arbanne from the 2009 vintage (50%) and Réserve wines (2008 and 2007). It's fresh and precise on the nose, with refreshing citrus flavors. Round and elegant on the palate, with a good intensity and ripeness, this is an excellent and complex wine with a long, tension-filled finish. It has great grip and purity, but also ripeness and intensity."
