Champagne Tarlant Zero Brut NV (RP:93)

FRS000029A

Title

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。

沒有後加糖分,Zero是率直和新鮮的香檳,展現所有葡萄和土壤希望表現的東西。這Brut Nature極為罕有,三種葡萄加起來的平衡感覺令人讚歎,皆因葡萄種植方法尊敬自然,葡萄也經特別挑選,成熟得最完美的才會用來釀酒。

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.

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.

Without added sugar, Zero (stands for zero dosage) is a frank fresh champagne that unveils all that the grapes and soil have to say. This Brut Nature is rare and remarkable in the balance of the three varieties benefiting from methods of cultivation which respect nature, and which are specially selected at perfect maturity.
