Staff Pick Notes

Tarlant has a history, a long one at that, of going rogue, of doing their own thing and staying true to the nature of making honest wines. More than a century ago they took a moral stand against the big houses who were buying grapes from outside Champagne and refused to sell to them. They became the original grower-producer and helped establish the AOC. Fast forward to today and they're once again drawing outside of the lines with a bottling of their base wine sans bubbles. Rich and expressive with layers of green apple, citrus, and a hint of oak. It's dense and full-bodied but with an electrifying tension that will defy any expectations and utterly delight.

Chardonnay

From Champagne to Chablis, it's hard (not to mention unpleasant) to avoid this famous white variety. During a huge popularity surge beginning in the late 1980s, Chardonnay plantings have increased dramatically -- not only in California's wine country, with which the variety is nearly synonymous, but also in Burgundy (its original, Old World home) and just about everywhere else in the winemaking world. It is a flexible, eager-to-please grape, responding well to just about anything a winemaker...
