In Champagne’s Vallée de la Marne, Benoît and Mélanie Tarlant manage their vines and their cellar the way a mad scientist runs his laboratory. A pinch of that, a dash of this; everything is done painstakingly by hand and with keen attention to every detail.

These 12th generation vignerons buck the trends of the Marne, where Pinot Meunier dominates. Instead, the Tarlants have planted half of their 13 hectares to Pinot Noir, and just under a third to Chardonnay.

Tarlant père, Jean-Mary, made waves in Champagne in the ‘70s by producing some of the region’s first Brut Nature wines, with no added dosage; the aim here is to allow the purity of the fruit to beam through the glass, without any manipulations.

With all of the extraordinary terroir, meticulous farming and winemaking techniques practices in use at Tarlant, you’d think the wines would sell for a ton of money—but no, somehow, over 12 generations, the Tarlant name has remained under the radar.

"Tarlant's NV Brut Nature Zero Rosé is laced with the essence of cranberry, mint, savory herbs, chalk and bright, salivating acids. There is lovely depth and aromatic intensity in the glass. A bit angular today, the Rosé could use another year or two in bottle. Even today, though, the wine is impeccable in its balance. This release is based on 2010, with 40% reserve wines from 2009 and 2008. The Rosé is 50% Chardonnay and 36% Pinot Noir, with about 14% still Pinot and Meunier in the blend." -Vinous

"Based on the 2011 vintage, the NV Brut Nature Rosé Zero is pure and fresh on both the nose and palate. Complemented with reserve wines from 2010 and 2009, this is a stunningly lean, straight, very firm and sour cuvée with lots of citrus flavors. Composed of 44% Pinot Noir, 6% Pinot Meunier and 50% Chardonnay, it has a pretty white character with a pink color." -Robert Parker

What importer Bowler Wine has to say about this wine...

50% Chardonnay/44% Pinot Noir/6% Pinot Meunier from organically farmed, hand-harvested estate vines across 63 parcels in 4 villages near Oeuilly in the Vallée de la Marne. The main focus of Benoît Tarlant's approach the rosé is making the perfect Pinot Noir, which makes up nearly half of the wine and is the starting point of the wine (as opposed to adding a bit of red later to a white base). Judging the appropriate levels of color, tannin and red-fruit flavors is a crucial challenge, given its high proportion in the final blend and its long aging.

Champagne boasts some of the world’s greatest luxury brands with Krug, Cristal and, of course, Dom Perignon. But it’s also home to hundreds of small dynamic producers—farmers who grow their own grapes (often organically) and make (often with natural methods) tiny amounts of pure and absolutely delicious wine that reflect the individual personalities of their villages and terroirs. Toast with these wines, for sure. But also treat them like the great wines they are: taste, drink, explore!
