Champagne Tarlant Rosé ZERO Brut Nature NV

Vallée de la Marne, Champagne, FranceFounded in 1687, this Marne based, family owned grower champagne house is now in the care of the 12th generation. This Rosé ZERO Brut Nature is 50% Chardonnay, with Pinot Noir (44%), and Pinot Meunier (6%) adding hue and subtle red fruit. A portion of the red grapes undergoes a short maceration pre-native ferment, and this base wine 2016 has 20% barrel aged reserve wines added. After 5 years on lees, this bottle was disgorged in February 2022, with 0 dosage. Energetic and bright, with strawberry leather, white cherry, crunchy green apple strung across a taut palate, corseted with lemon, and with a limestone buzz taking this to a saline finish. You don't see a lot of Zero dosage Rosé Champagnes, and this rarity is something special. Really smart, modern, and fresh, this pale-hued rosé is one to watch for, and enjoy liberally now.
