BAM! Brut Nature (2010 base)
27% Pinot Blanc/27% Arbanne/46% Petit Meslier. "BAM!" is an acronym of these three relatively rare, low-yielding Champagne varieties. The vines were planted in 2003 on sandy, silica-rich limestone soils in the lieu-dit Four à Chaux-Sablé in Oeuilly and are certified-organic like the rest of Tarlant's sites. This blanc des blancs is 50% 2010 base wine with 50% barrel-aged reserve wines from 2007-2009. The fruit is co-harvested by hand, gently pressed and fermented with natural yeasts in tank; the wine does not go through malo. It is blended, bottled and aged sur lattes for 7 years. The 2010-base BAM! was botted in 2011 and disgorged in 2019. Zero dosage. 900-bottles produced.
