TARLANT EXTRA BRUT CUVEE LOUIS

Tarlant’s tête de cuvée, Cuvée Louis, is simply a stunner. This is a prodigious, broad-shouldered wonder that earned a near perfect score on our tasting sheets. It is named for Benoît’s great-great-grandfather, Louis Tarlant, who began estate-bottling Champagne after the First World War. It’s a 100% barrel-fermented, single-vineyard Champagne crafted from vines over 50 years old in Les Crayons, a chalky parcel in in the village of Oeuilly near the Marne River that’s planted with a 50/50 mix of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Anotnio Galloni tasted this current incarnation of “Louis” back in May inking this rave: “Apricots, dried pears, spices, flowers, honey and hazelnuts meld together in the NV Cuvée Louis. Warm, toasty and resonant to the core, the 1999 is built on gorgeous breadth and pure volume. Readers who like rich, oxidative Champagnes will love the Cuvée Louis. This release is based on the 1999 vintage, with 15% reserve wine from the previous release (1998, 1997, 1996), equal parts Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. 94 Points.” This bottle was disgorged in February 2014 with a scant 2 grams/liter dosage.
