(108,04  / 1000 ml)

On the palate, the Millésime immediately shows this incomparable balance of an excellently matured champagne with a lot of Chardonnay, where, on the one hand, such a laid-back mood arises due to the sensual warm, slightly toasted notes of nuts, marzipan, baked goods and ripe yellow fruit, but on the other hand, one is then again in a cautionary position due to the precise and lively acidity in combination with chalky notes and a little graphite. Light golden yellow with fine perlage - The La Lutétienne shows intense notes of crumbly apples, even baked apples, in combination with warm brioche, butter and almond cream, some nougat, dry wood and blond tobacco.

Wine information

The Champagne is a cuvée of 80 % Chardonnay and 20 % Pinot Noir. The fruit comes from the Lieu-dits L'Enclume and Les Marguiniers with lots of flint in the soil, also from Pierre de Bellevue with Sparnacien limestone and clay. The three vineyards are located in Œuilly. In addition, there is fruit from Lieu-dit Les Forgeottes in Celles-lès-Condé, which has very hard limestone. As usual with Tarlant, the base wine was pressed very slowly by gravity plot by plot, fermented spontaneously and left on the lees for six months in Burgundian Pièces Malolactic fermentation was avoided as it was not desired. After the ageing of the base wine, the blend was bottled on 4 May 2006, where it remained until 10 February 2020. On that day the Champagne but no dosage was added. Thus, the wine was allowed to mature in the cellars of Tarlant in Œuilly for almost 14 years.

Nose

The La Lutétienne shows intense notes of crumbly apples, even baked apples, in combination with warm brioche, butter and almond cream, some nougat, dry wood and blond tobacco. With air and time, the notes are joined by pear jam and a few ripe raspberries. The Champagne appears mature on the nose, at the same time fresh and thus announces what it offers on the palate with one or two dimensions more.

Because on the palate the Millésime directly this incomparable balance of a superbly matured Champagne's with a lot of Chardonnay, where on the one hand. Laid-back-The sensual, warm, lightly toasted notes of nuts, marzipan, baked goods and ripe yellow fruit create an atmosphere, but on the other hand, the precise and lively acidity combined with chalky notes and a little graphite put one in a state of caution. This is creamy and melting, mineral, intense and delicious.
