The current release of Tarlant “Zero” Brut Nature Rosé is from the base year of 2009 and spent five years aging on its fine lees prior to disgorgement. The cépages is eighty-five percent chardonnay and fifteen percent pinot noir and the wine offers up a bright and zesty nose of blood orange, rhubarb, a touch of musky spice tones, woodsmoke, fine soil, cloves and a touch of orange peel in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and beautifully balanced, with a superb core of fruit, frothy mousse, lovely transparency and a very long, complex and perfectly balanced finish. Even though this wine spent one year less sur latte than the non-Rosé version, the riper aspect of the ’09 vintage has given this even better balance for current drinking. Beautiful juice. 92+.
