Champagne Tarlant Prestige Millesime Extra Brut 1999 (RP:92)


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,他們的村在Benoît Tarlant手中,並於1999年開始產酒。

Marne Valley土壤多元化,令Tarlant的酒擁有複雜風土,由於鄰近Marne River,加Tarlant仔細運用木桶,令他們的香檳豐腴,味道濃郁。

這瓶1999 Brut Prestige 由杯中展現成熟多汁的啤梨、榛子和香料。杯中的元素都呈現可人的平衡。與酒渣陳年時間給予這瓶1999年的酒質感和複雜度,被阻止了的蘋果酸-乳酸二次發酵和低分量dosage(每升4克)令此酒更集中。此酒於2000年5月裝瓶,於2011年5月除渣。


66% Chardonnay, 34% Pinot Meunier




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.

The diversity of soils in this area of the Marne Valley results in a complex signature of terroir that is strongly reflected in Tarlant’s wines. These are ample, full-flavored champagnes, influenced by their close proximity to the Marne River, as well as by Tarlant’s sophisticated use of oak for vinification.

The 1999 Brut Prestige emerges from the glass with ripe, juicy pears, hazelnuts and spices. There is lovely balance and harmony as all of the elements take shape in the glass. Extended time on the lees gives the 1999 textural depth and complexity, while the blocked malo and low dosage (4 grams per litre) gives the wine much of its focus and verve. The wine was bottled in May 2000 and disgorged in May 2011.
