"BAM!" Brut Nature (2011 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 of Four à Chaux-Sablé in Oeuilly and are certified-organic like the rest of Tarlant's sites. This blanc des blancs is composed of 50% 2010 with 50% 2007-2009 reserve wines. The fruit is harvested by hand, gently pressed and co-fermented with natural yeasts in barrel; the wine does not go through malo. Bottled in 2011 and disgorged in 2019. Zero dosage. 900 bottles produced.
