Tarlant is an absolute gem of a producer responsible for some of the finest value from anywhere in the Champagne region. The Tarlant Brut Tradition is an impeccable choice for anyone looking for an inside steer on what to buy from this amazing house.
Winemaker Benoit Tarlant is a master craftsman, ageing his estate grown fruit for up to 6 years in bottle (the legal minimum for an NV is 15 months), giving a layered complexity that challenges even the most famous.
This care and subsequent quality means that Tarlant’s Champagnes have been heaped with praise:
Antonio Galloni: “gorgeous” “I adore Benoit Tarlant’s Champagnes”
Richard Juhlin: “opulent wine that is very high class”
Robert Parker: “reminiscent of a grand cru white Burgundy with bubbles”
Hugh Johnson: “remarkable Cuvee Louis. Krug style”
Despite this, prices are almost too good to be true.

The NV Brut Tradition is a beautiful entry-level wine graced with an open, exquisite bouquet and layers of warm, radiant fruit. Peaches, pears and hazelnuts linger on the pretty finish. The Brut Tradition is 55% Pinot Noir, 37% Pinot Meunier and 8% Chardonnay, but it is the base vintage - in this case the hot 2003 - that marks the wine quite noticeably. This bottle was disgorged in July 2009. Dosage is 6 grams per liter. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2015. Wine Advocate.December, 2010
Only 5% Chardonnay so very nearly a Blanc de Noir. Toast and Brioche on the nose and fresh in the mouth with clean and crisp acidity. This gives way to full and rich fruit with a gorgeous layered texture - hugely complex and to a degree rarely found in Champagne at this price. F+R
