Tarlant is a small but extremely prestigious maison, rooted in the Champagne region since 1687, when the founder Pierre Tarlant began to cultivate the vine. A century later the Talant family moved to Oeuilly, in the Vallé de la Marne, where it contributed, with the first Cuvée Tarlant of the 1920s, to the so-called Révolution Champenoise, that is to say the prestige and excellence of French bubbles in the world.
Today, the Tarlant family owns 14 hectares of vineyards divided into 60 prestigious parcels, among which a free-standing plot (Les Sables) stands out, surviving the phylloxera epidemic thanks to the very sandy soil. Benoît Tarlant, representative of the XIV generation of the Tralant, cultivates these vineyards with great environmental sensitivity, attention to the micro-territoriality and the peculiarities of each individual parcel, demonstrating great qualities of vigneron and oenologist. In the cellar, separate vinification is preferred in barrique, but steel and cement vats are also used. We tend not to carry out the malolactic fermentation and the reserve wines are kept in cask.
Tarlant Champagne is rigorous, artisanal and complex, but it is not difficult or difficult. Tarlant was a forerunner in the 90s of zero doses and today all production, limited to just over 100,000 bottles a year, consists of pas dosé and extra brut. The style of these Champagne reveals a skilful and well-balanced use of wood and the exaltation of each micro-terroir: an elegant and balanced style that retains all the charm of the great Champagne.
