Pierre Tarlant於Marne Valley種植葡萄樹,而Tarlant家族就於1687年開始釀酒。1928年,Louis Adrien Tarlant生產了第一支家族香檳,其後他們便於OEuilly村出產香檳,延綿四代。時至今日,於1999年傳至Benoît Tarlant手中並開始產酒。
The Tarlant family traces their winegrowing history back to 1687, when Pierre Tarlant first cultivated grapevines in the Marne Valley. In 1928, Louis Adrien Tarlant produced the family’s first estate-bottled champagne, and since then there have been four successive generations of Tarlants producing wine at their estate in the village of OEuilly. Today the estate is in the hands of Benoît Tarlant, who has been making wine here since 1999.

陶瓶葡萄酒 - 最古老的葡萄酒釀造方法之一
Amphora Wine - A Primer on One of the Oldest Ways to Make Wine

近年來,使用古代傳統陶瓷瓶陳釀的葡萄酒越來越受歡迎。但這並不是什麼新鮮的技術。實際上,這種做法起源於至少6000年前的東歐(今:格魯吉亞地區)。
陶瓶是介於鋼和橡木之間。像橡木一樣的多孔特性,允許氧氣進入並使葡萄酒具有濃郁而豐富的質感,又像不銹鋼般的中性材料,不會影響本身風味。
Wine aged in clay, or amphora, has grown in popularity in recent years. But this technique is far from new. In fact, the practice originated in what is now modern-day Georgia, at least 6,000 years ago.
Clay can be thought of as a middle ground between steel and oak. Like oak, clay is porous, so it does allow for some oxygen giving the wine a deep and rich texture, but like steel it’s a neutral material that won’t impart any additional flavors.

品酒筆記Tasting Notes:
這款NV Brut Argilité完全基於2013年份,並在傳統陶瓷瓶中發酵了七個月。
此酒具有純淨清新的香氣,帶有許多柑橘類和軟糖般的香氣。
口感圓潤、果味濃郁,是一枝精緻而芳香的香檳,二次發酵所產生的餘糖相當迷人。
This NV Brut Argilité is entirely based on the 2013 vintage, and was fermented for seven months in amphorae. The wine has a pure and fresh bouquet with lots of citrus but also gummy flavors. Round and very fruity on the palate, this is a delicate and aromatic Champagne with charming residual sugar from the second fermentation. No dosage here, but it has a lovely sweetness.
