The Champagne

The Sapience Oenotheque 2013 is a real highlight on many levels, and not just because of this exceptionally beautiful bottle. The cuvée is a joint project between Benoit Marguet and his equally biodynamic colleagues David Leclapart, Vincent Laval and Benoit Lahaye. Leclapart supplies the Chardonnay (50%), Laval the Pinot Meunier (25%) and Benoit Lahaye the Pinot Noir (25%) for this prestige cuvée. Sapience is vinified by Benoît Marguet and Hervé Jestin, the guru of biodynamic champagne. The winegrowers only use the best plots for Sapience. Before the second fermentation in the bottle, the base wine matures for two years in very select wooden barrels. It then spent a good 10 years on the lees before being disgorged in 2019.

The 2013 Sapience – a champagne that is bursting with energy! Imagine your palate diving into a sea of aromas: citrus, orange, white flowers and a slightly oxidative touch for which Marguet is so famous. A masterpiece of harmony and grandeur!

This champagne can also be stored wonderfully for many years.

Tasting Note

  • In the glass, a beautiful lemon yellow. The delicacy of the perlage is hard to beat.
  • On the nose, a scent of apple and citrus, punctuated by a slight smokiness and hints of vanilla.
  • The palate is full-bodied and complex with vibrant energy. Spicy and with exceptional depth and minerality.

Pair with

  • A soloist for special moments.
  • Also goes well with spicy, Asian dishes.
  • Also a super companion to any kind of seafood.

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.
