Started in 1678, Champagne Tarlant is about terroir. Now run by the 12th generation of the Tarlant family, they are unlike many Grower Champagnes, which work to achieve a "house" style through dosage and blending. Champagne Tarlant produces mostly Brut Zero wines with the focus on the fruit and the land. With 14 estate hectares, across 4 crus, the estate dots the Marne Valley and benefits from the river's moderating temperature influence on these hillside vineyards. Each plot from the winery is harvested and vinified separately, another factor that makes Tarlant stand out from other wineries.
100% Pinot Meunier. A Blanc des Noirs from a single parcel called "Pierre de Bellevue", planted in 1947 in Oeuilly by the Tarlants' paternal grandfather Georges on Sparnacian clay-limestone soils (a type specific to the Marne Valley and particularly suited for both black Pinot grapes).
