This Demeter-certified blend of 59% Chardonnay and 41% Pinot Noir smells insanely good – it’s scent a composition of wild red berries paired with slightly earthy and chalky aromas. Nice length on the palate and extremely fresh. An exciting and somewhat wild rosé – typical Marguet.
- In the glass, a sparkling pink with golden reflections and lively play of pearls.
- A scent of wild berries, subtle notes of brioche and Mediterranean herbs.
- On the palate, one immediately rediscovers the aroma of fresh red berries. In addition, there are slightly salty and chalky components. Velvety, spicy and pleasantly dry, with grip and extreme length.
- Ideal with light vegetarian dishes.
- Goes very well with root vegetables such as beet, black salsify or parsnips.
- Also a super companion to white-fleshed fish.
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.
