"One of the most dynamic family-run estate in Champagne. Close to its origins, Champagne in its purest form can be read on the labels. Their vinegrowing is painstaking, perfectly adapted to the mosaic of different soils and subsoils. Adding neither enzyme nor yeasts two thirds of the vinification is carried out in wood. These champagnes have volume, they are chewy and keep good freshness thanks to very light dosage. A real policy of vintages has been adopted and, like the very best champagne houses, the Tarlants only release their wines at their peak after eight or ten years cellaring. This faultlessness leads us to grant a second star to the domain."

"Champagne with style..."

"It's the third time in a row that a Tarlant Brut Nature reaches the top."

La Vigne d'Or 2004 : 2 stars * * Editor's Choice : "Golden yellow with a fine bubble, very aromatic, combining dry fruits (almond, hazelnut), gingerbread and honey. In the same mature register, the mouth is betwitching with a lively freshness boosting the aromas. This is an excellent champagne that deserves to be tasted with attention in order to appreciate its richness and complexity."

Zero : 1 star "This non-dosed champagne reveals a beautiful maturity in its fragrances of toast, biscuit and butter. The mouth adds dried fruit to this palette and draws attention with a lively attack."

L'Aérienne 2004 : 2-Star * * Editor's Choice : "Golden to the eye, this Champagne is immediately attractive with intense aromas coming from a fine evolution: candied fruits and fresh walnut combined with oak-aging aromas, a clean attack and wonderful balance."

Cuvee Louis : 1 star "Amber, brilliant, with great aromatic complexity (dried and candied fruits, honey, roasting, baking, undergrowth), this brut nature has strong personnality."

Cuvee Louis : 1-star "Half and half Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Its age (being a blend of wines from 1996 to 1999) and the fermentation on wood have given it a character showing preserved fruits and honey. Structure, freshness and personality."

"The dynamic Benoit Tarlant 'recoltant-manipulant' has no hesitation in offering single vineyard wines with little or no dosing, arguing convincingly for his choice. He is an epicure who systematically puts his ideas into practice, it is meet for us to praise the straightforwardness of the process."

Zero: "This Brut Nature (undosed), made from equal parts of pinot noir, pinot meunier and chardonnay, offers a hazelnut nose over a background of red fruits. The mouth is vinous and attractively frank." - 15 /20

Cuvee Louis: "With 50 % Pinot Noir and 50 % Chardonnay, the nose has hints of red fruits, with a beautiful vinous attack, good length and an attractive saline finish." - 15.5 /20

La Vigne Royale 2003: "On this terroir, where the limestone is near to the surface, located on one of the best areas of the Aisne, we liked the mineral intensity and the consistency between the nose and mouth." - 16.5 /20

"Already winemakers when Dom Perignon was alive, the Tarlants have truly been part of winemaking history in the village of Oeuilly on the left bank of the Marne. The Estate is directed by the twelfth generation, represented by Benoît and Melanie, children of Jean-Mary Tarlant, who is chairman. Benedict is the winemaker and advocates a natural approach to viticulture (using herbal infusions in the vineyard) and winemaking. His wines do not undergo malolactic fermentation, have known wood and are either very lightly dosed or "natural" (no dosage with sugar). His Cuvee Prestige 2000 is an extra-brut fermented in barrel. Chardonnay, which comprises 90 % of the blend (with a little Pinot Noir added) imprint the well bodied wine with freshness and finesse, perfumed with apricot and candied citrus fruit. A delightful, mature champagne to drink towards the end of the year, with a poularde (hen fattened for the table) for example. Quoted here, the Zero nature wine made from the three varieties in equal part, surprises and delights. A mature wine, there is a range of aromas, mixing cherries with brandy and cocoa, in contrast with the freshness of the mouth."

Michel Bettane & Thierry Desseauve

"The dynamic Tarlant family, who harvest and make their own wines, go from strength to strength. They have no hesitation in offering wines with minimal or non-existent dosage from specific plots."

Zero: "With a very fruit-forward, lively and tangy character, this is a very sound extra-brut." - 14 /20

La Vigne d'Or 2003: "Great fresh liveliness. Fine and generous structure." - 16 /20

La Vigne Royale 2003: "A fine champagne. Excellent vinosity, with a firm intense character." - 16 /20

" Ennobles the heart of the left bank of the Marne Valley. "

Guide RVF 2011 - FRANCE

"This year, the entire output has been produced with minimal dosage (Extra-brut) or none at all (Nature). This perfect mastery of grape maturity can be seen starting with their Zero, open, very dry, pure, with a taste of grapes and the North wind. The Prestige Vintage 1998 finishes fresh on the mouth now it has reached maturity - characteristic of the sunny year . La Vigne d'Antan 2000 (ungrafted vines) is a slender chardonnay, well bodied and with plenty of vigour, considering the year. Our favourite continues to be La Vigne d'Or 1999, a Pinot Meunier white, of great gentleness, (hints of honey and grapes in rum) very fine in texture, to be drunk now."

Wine Advocate

"Stunning new releases..."

Robert Parker - The Wine Advocate - USA

"This is a stunning new releases from Benoit Tarlant. All of the wines show incredible purity and transparency."

Zero: Outstanding, 93 Pts - Gorgeous, open aromatics meld into an expressive core of ripe yellow fruit. The wine possesses dazzling intensity, clarity and detail in a generous, beautifully balanced style. Smoke, roasted nuts and pastry develop in the glass, adding complexity on the richly textured, vivid finish. The NV Brut Nature is equal parts Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier based on the 2005 vintage with the addition of reserve wines aged in oak. This bottle was disgorged in June 2009 with no dosage. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020.

Rosé Zero: Outstanding, 93 Pts - This beautiful Champagne is first and foremost a wine that happens to have bubbles. The Brut Nature Rosé Zero reveals outstanding tension, richness and depth in a powerful expression of fruit. The masculine, intense finish is certainly not for the timid, but this is a gorgeous, utterly pure wine that will come to life at the dinner table. The Brut Nature Rosé Zero is 85% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Noir based on the 2004 vintage with the addition of reserve wines aged in oak and bottled with no dosage. This bottle was disgorged in December 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2014.

Cuvee Louis: Outstanding, 93 Pts - The wine captures a gorgeous balance between its mature bouquet and a level of freshness that is the result of the recent disgorgement. Dried pears, apricots and smoke are just some of the nuances that come to life on the long, creamy finish. This is a harmonious, elegant Champagne of the highest level. Tarlant's NV Extra Brut Cuvee Louis is 50% Pinot Noir, and 50% Chardonnay, vintages 1998, 1997 and 1996, fermented in oak with no malolactic fermentation. This bottle was disgorged in May 2009. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019."

Guide GaultMillau

" Dedicated to the true expression of wine "

Guide GaultMillau 2010 - FRANCE

The Tarlant family are an ancient Champagne family who are long past their first experiments. Very long aging of fine blends bring complexity, richness, maturity and an ultra fine mousse. The wines are nervy, fresh, or sometimes even lemony but so full of flavour! La Vigne d'Antan 2000 is a jewel of great purity and excellent intensity. The Cuvee Louis is spicier, while the Prestige Vintage 1998 shows beautiful tasty fruit. The two cuvee Zero (undosed) should be drunk as aperitifs. " (guide 2010)

" One of the most dynamic family estates of Champagne "

Guide La Revue du Vin de France - FRANCE

One of the most dynamic Champagne family estates, who ennoble the heart of the left bank of the Marne Valley. The wines: sharp edged without hardness, the non dosed Zero have true length, which complemented the spicy chewy mouth of the rosé version of the wine (Rosé Zero). More autumnal, the Rosé Prestige 1998 gives some oxidative suggestions, which the white Prestige Vintage of the same year rounds out with notes of liquorice and roots in a powerful finish. The ungrafted chardonnay of "La Vigne d'Antan" combine flair and density. A very convincing terroir wine. " (guide 2010)

Cuvee Louis recommended by Decanter

Champagne Revue

"Intense and race red wine with incomparable characteristics"

Champagne Revue - FRANCE

The Champagne Revue selects the Champagne Tarlant to be one of the rare and good addresses to find a Coteaux Champenois. "The pinot noir and the pinot meunier, harvested exclusively on the plots Notre-Dame and Longue Attente, produce a intense and racy red wine with incomparable characteristics. The bouquet is fruity, with intense flavours of red fruit, cherry and plum. The mouth reveals maturing red fruits and vanilla, accompanied by core and leather notes. Warm, mature and good length." (June 2006)

Style Magazine, Corriere Della Sera

La Vigne d'Antan: Matchless

Style Magazine, Corriere Della Sera - ITALY

The journalist Mauro Remondino describes the cuvee 100% chardonnay pre phylloxera as "the champagne of luxury and time travel ", "with notes of white flowers and rennet apples". He advises to marry this wine of champagne with shellfish and concludes by saying "a matchless champagne". (May 2006)

Via Michelin

"Tarlant: sensuality"

ViaMichelin - www.viamichelin.com

Zero: "Natural, with a pure bouquet, aromas of honey and lemon, and a lively taste of citrus fruit freshness, it is an 'everyday' champagne."

La Vigne d'Antan: "The elegance and purity of this Cuvee are wonderful."

La Vigne d'Or: "Generous and spicy, a champagne that is 100% Pinot Meunier, a grape variety that is emblematic of the Marne Valley."

Cuvee Louis: "Exceptional, powerful and complex champagne with a golden yellow colour and nose of almonds."

Wine advocate

"A Terrific, Fresh, Pure Champagne" and "A Remarkable Champagne"

The Wine Advocate - USA

"The Non-Vintage Zero is an austerely-styled, bone dry, crisp Champagne that begs for food. It is too lean and tight to enjoy on its own merits. However, its purity and intensy are admirable. It should drink well for 2-3 years."

Cuvee Louis: "This awesome Champagne has been vinified completely in new oak casks. Made from a blend of 50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir, this is one of the richiest, most honeyed and complex Champagnes I have tasted. The fermentation in new oak has given the wine structure, added richness (did I detect strawberries?), and a creamy, honeyed texture, but none of the oak flavours. The wine is full and fresh, without heaviness. Quite a discovery, this is a remarkable Champagne." by Robert Parker

Independant travellers guide

"Among the Most Innovative of Growers"

The Independent Traveller's Guide to Champagne - UK

"Champagne Tarlant is an outstanding winegrower with 13 ha of vineyards. Jean-Mary Tarlant and his son Benoit (excellent English) continue a family tradition that dates back to 1687. Today they are among the most innovative of growers, maturing most of their base wines in oak barrels and producing some fascinating light dosage champagnes including a Zero. The family has converted the accommodation that originally housed the pickers at harvest time into a well-equipped Chambre d'Hôte, serving breakfast in summer on a new terrace." by Philippe Boucheron

> See website: www.destinationchampagne.com...

The Times

"Top Winter Wines"

The Times - UK

Brut Reserve: "Tarlant exudes mature, nutty, buttered brioche finesse. A happy blend of one-third each pinots noir and meunier plus chardonnay, Tarlant's long winey style lingers in the mouth and will linger in the mind after the festivities are over."

Wine Spectator

"Full of Personality"

Wine Spectator - USA

"More travelers should consider a sojourn at Champagne Tarlant, a small family winery in the town of Oeuilly, just above the Marne river. You won't use the guest rooms for much-the rest of the time, you'll be watching everything that goes on in a working winery and talking with the engaging and knowledgable owners, Jean-Mary and Micheline Tarlant.

Cuvee Louis: A lot of wood character suggests barrel fermentation in this full-bodied, vanilla and walnut flavored champagne. Rich in texture and full of personality."

Zero: One of the best bone-dry Champagnes on the market

Cuvee Louis: Krug-like Cuvee Louis, fermented in new oak, is outstanding." by Michael Edwards

Vintage

"A Champagne of Connoisseurs, for Connoisseurs"

Vintage Magazine - UK

"Tarlant's Cuvee Louis received much appreciation and a note of 3 stars. This is a champagne of connoisseurs, for connoisseurs. With its notes of citrus on the nose, and a lovely evolution of honey, vanilla and mint, it is a true maverick. On the palate, it is both creamy, with very firm bubbles, and very structured, with much extraction. The finish is of pineapples and spices. A real phenomenon. It is a race apart. You could try it with a distinctive cheese, like the vacherin, but this might be tricky. Another idea would be to try it with nuts, figs, and other dry fruit on a winter evening

Financial Times

"Which Growers are Most Welcoming to visitors"

Financial Times - UK

"Benoît Tarlant of Oeuilly in the Marne valley, one of the easiest champagne growers to reach from Paris, offers both accommodation and educational visits from March to December, although they have to be booked in advance." by Jancis Robinson

Harpers

"One of the Most Brilliantly Expressive Wines"

Harpers Magazine - UK

" Despite relying on tradition, there is nothing backward about their viticulture or winemaking. The Tarlants are sensitive to their many different terroirs. One of the most brilliantly expressive wines, the aristocratic Zero, has no dosage at all, allowing the fruit and the terroir to shine through. Above the NV Brut Tradition (an excellent first wine, dense and rich), and the Brut Rosé, are the vintage Cuvee Prestige and Rosé Prestige. At the top of the range is the superb NV Cuvee Louis, a Chardonnay/Pinot Noir blend from 40-year-old vines in the family's oldest vineyard, Les Crayons 100% barrel fermented. The back labels are models, clearly stating the date of la mise en bouteille as well as the disgorgement for all wines. Of the 110,000-bottle production, 55% is exported."

Jancis Robinson

"Pink champagne"

www.jancisrobinson.com - UK

"There are particularly distinctive styles of rosé champagne such as grower Tarlant, big-boned 1996."

The Observer

"A Rich, Concentrated Fizz"

Observer Magazine - UK

" Brut Tradition: Another excellent grower's Champagne, albeit in a very different style, dominated by the black grapes, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. This is a rich, concentrated fizz, which benefits from partial oak fermentation. A Bollinger-style wine at a very attractive price."
