About the wine

Benôit Marguet makes a very distinctive, full-bodied, rich Champagne. The blend is 75% chardonnay and 25% pinot noir, hand-picked and pressed straight to barrel. This non-vintage wine is based on the 2015 vintage (hence the '15' in the name), with reserve wines from older vintages adding complexity to the blend. The wine has a real core of beautiful stone fruit like peaches and apricots, thanks to the prominent amount of chardonnay in the blend. It Opens up and gives off some fantastic red berry fruit and cherry flavours, all delicate but masterfully done. The palate is particulary delicate with lovely acidity that melts away on your tongue.

Background Winery

Winery Marguet became one

Based in the grand cru village of Ambonnay, Benoit is fifth generation and one of the most exciting natural producers at the moment being certified organic and biodynamic. For example he is one of very few vineyards to plough only using 2 horses since 2010. He sources fruit from Ambonnay, Bouzy and Mailly and uses a very natural approach to fermentation using only wild yeasts. He is also sulphur free and uses small 225 litre oak barriques.
