Created by the Tarlants' parents back in 1982, the prestige cuvée Louis is named for Benoît’s and Melanie’s great-great-great grandfather. Louis was the first to bottle Tarlant estate wine (in 1928) and the one who planted this 0.9 hectare of selection massale Pinot Noir and Chardonnay (in 1946-48).

The lieu-dit is named Les Crayons in reference to its particularly chalky make-up. It is a flat site near the Marne in the Tarlant home village of Oeuilly and produces what the Tarlants refer to as a "river wine" of fuller body and richer character.

This bottling is a blend of 2004 and 2005. The fruit was hand-harvested and gently pressed; the juice was fermented with natural yeasts in Burgundy barrel; and the wine was aged in barrel with no malolactic fermentation until bottling in 2006.
