Since the 2013 harvest, this very special Cuvée contains next to the classic three grape varieties (Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier) in addition a small part of Petit Meslier, Arbanne and Pinot Blanc, the rather rare grape varieties of Champagne. Without added sugar, Zero (stands for zero dosage) is a frank fresh champagne that unveils all that the grapes and soil have to say. A very rich terroir of the Marne valey: Chalk, Sparnacien (chalk mixed with clay), sand and limestone. This Brut Nature is rare and remarkable in the balance of the six varieties benefiting from methods of cultivation which respect nature, and which are specially selected at perfect maturity. Between the very olds vines, Melanie and Benoît Tarlant plant selected herbs, mustard and oak in order to give the soil some essential elements back.
The wines for this Cuvée are mostly from one harvest with reserve wines from previous years. Vinification: First fermentation in stainless steel vats which are thermostatically controlled at each stage of fermentation. Reserve wines are aged in oak barrels. A long maturation of over 6 years on the lees and another year in the cellar before this Champagne is released.
