Delicate – Mineral – Intense
A very special Rosé Champagne from the sun-drenched 2018 vintage, composed of 82% Chardonnay and 18% Pinot Noir. The base wines were aged in wooden barrels, after which the Champagne rested on its lees for four years. The result: a Brut Nature Champagne in a limited edition of only 2,148 bottles. Its character? Unconventional, profound – a champagne for true connoisseurs! Enjoy a dry champagne with fresh berry notes, spicy nuances, the typical yeasty aroma and a hint of smoke – just in the style of the talented Benoît Marguet.
In the glass: pale pink with golden glints and a fine, lively perlage.
Nose: A scent of wild berries, underpinned by earthy, and smoky mineral notes.
Palate: A multi-layered taste experience berry and mineral at the same time, a hint of grapefruit with earthy and smoky accents as well as a gentle, well-integrated acidity and an insanely long finish.
THE MARGUET CHAMPAGNE HOUSE
Benoît Marguet is the fifth generation of his family to run the small Marguet champagne house in the southern Montagne de Reims. This puts the winemaker in the great position of being able to work with vines that are 38 years old on average. Benoît Marguet firmly believes that an honest and straightforward champagne can only be created through organic cultivation. His vineyards are still plowed with horses and all the champagnes are aged in wood.
Since 2006, Marguet has been collaborating with Hervé Jestin, the former cellar master of Duval-Leroy. Jestin advises many Champagne houses, and Benoît Marguet has learned a lot about biodynamic viticulture from him.
The Marguet champagnes are fruity and elegant yet powerful. Mostly without dosage and with a spicy and sometimes smoky note. This, by the way, makes them excellent food companions.
