Champagne Tarlant, Brut Nature, “Rosé Zero”

Brut Nature Champagnes—ones that eschew the addition of sugar (zero dosage) after disgorgement—have evolved into a preferred style for many sommeliers. When executed skillfully and correctly, these wines present some of the purest drinking experiences on earth. Enter Tarlant: Many of you have fallen deeply in love with their Brut Nature in the past, so today we are ecstatic to introduce its far-rarer sibling rosé!
The Tarlant family focuses almost exclusively on zero dosage cuvées and their “Rosé Zero” is one of the greatest Brut Nature wines we’ve experienced, competing with just about any other rosé Champagne regardless of dosage and price point.

Its refreshing lift, delicately fruited nose, and pure mineral verve puts it in its own style and class. If you’ve been wondering what the buzz behind Brut Nature is about, let Tarlant be your warm welcome—this family stands among the best in the business!

The Tarlant family has been farming the vines since 1687. Since 1999, twelfth-generation Benoît Tarlant is at the helm and has brought his family’s estate into the modern era by vinifying parcels separately and doubling down on the family’s respect for the environment. Benoît is deeply engaged in his work and passionate about all aspects of the estate—he even incorporates a diversity of extremely rare “heirloom” grapes into many of their wines (Pinot Blanc, Arbane, Petit Meslier). Across the board, Tarlant’s house style is muscular, direct, mineral-driven, and delicious. 
In the glass, Tarlant’s “Rosé Zero” shines a pale salmon with soft pink hues leading out to a silvery rim. More often than not, zero dosage Champagne have muted aromas, but this jumps out with bright red fruits, apple skins, pomegranate, raspberry, crushed chalk, white and red flowers, delicate white pepper, vanilla bean, and savory herbs. This is not a soft, rich, biscuity corporate Champagne, it is an extremely serious, intellectual and refined wine. On the palate, there is a deep, almost Chablis-like mineral core mixed with subtle notes of Rainier cherry and citrus blossoms alongside crunchy minerality. The trick to unlocking this wine’s full potential is drinking it slowly out of a wide-mouthed Champagne glass or simply an all-purpose white stem. Please open this around cellar temperature and allow it to evolve by consuming over several hours—as some carbonation blows off and the wine warms, its intricacies will deepen. Due to its structure and freshness, this attached strawberry-chicken salad mixed with pecans should be the ultimate pairing: refreshing, slightly sweet, and perfectly crunchy. Enjoy!

France

Bourgogne

Beaujolais

Enjoying the greatest wines of Beaujolais starts, as it usually does, with the lay of the land. In Beaujolais, 10 localities have been given their own AOC (Appellation of Controlled Origin) designation. They are: Saint Amour; Juliénas; Chénas; Moulin-à Vent; Fleurie; Chiroubles; Morgon; Régnié; Côte de Brouilly; and Brouilly.

Southwestern France

Bordeaux

Bordeaux surrounds two rivers, the Dordogne and Garonne, which intersect north of the city of Bordeaux to form the Gironde Estuary, which empties into the Atlantic Ocean. The region is at the 45th parallel (California’s Napa Valley is at the38th), with a mild, Atlantic-influenced climate enabling the maturation of late-ripening varieties.

Central France

Loire Valley

The Loire is France’s longest river (634 miles), originating in the southerly Cévennes Mountains, flowing north towards Paris, then curving westward and emptying into the Atlantic Ocean near Nantes. The Loire and its tributaries cover a huge swath of central France, with most of the wine appellations on an east-west stretch at47 degrees north (the same latitude as Burgundy).

Northeastern France

Alsace

Alsace, in Northeastern France, is one of the most geologically diverse wine regions in the world, with vineyards running from the foothills of theVosges Mountains down to the Rhine River Valley below.
