"Our father fought for grass in the vines and to stop have garbage from cities being thrown in the vines as a fertilizer. It took five years. That was his fight. Organics seems like the challenge of our generation." - Tarlant.
The first grapes cultivated on the Tarlant property dates back to 1687. Throughout the years, it quickly established itself as an industry leader. In fact, in the late 1920s, Tarlant was one of the first independent estates. Since then, 12 generations have worked on the estate, where there is great respect for history, tradition, and respect for nature.
The estate produces about 50% Pinot Noir, with 30% of Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Meunier. These grapes are never sprayed with synthetic chemicals, and the estate prides itself on the use of biodynamic practices. In addition, there are only small amounts of sulfites added, which once again highlights the estate’s dedication to pure wines.
Currently, the family produces about ten different Champagnes and has gained great respect worldwide, despite being a small, family-owned business.
