Grape: Chardonnay 80% - Pinot Noir 20%
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.
