One of Champagne’s most passionate advocates of biodynamic viticulture and aromatherapy, Benoit Marguet farms a total of 10 hectares in the Grand Cru village of Ambonnay, from which a two hectare production sold to Krug. All the vineyards are meticulously ploughed by the resident horses and farmed respecting the principles of biodynamics. Working with indigenous yeasts and minimal (no added) sulfite, the vins clairs are vinified plot by plot in wooden vats and see long elevage in smaller oak barrels sourced from the best French forests and crafted by the best ‘mérandiers’. All juice transfers are done by gravity. Disgorgement is without dosage. Framed by a delicate patina from their time in oak, Marguet’s cuvées are concentrated, intense, and beautifully balanced. Marguet has become highly sought-after by collectors around the world. Production is fully allocated.

Biodynamic. 100% chardonnay planted in 1958, 1965 and 1974 – clay sits on top of pure Campanian chalk. The deep roots soak up terroir character and mineral depth from the soils. Made of 100% Chardonnay, this is foaming gold, with a wonderful complexity: lemon with a nougat-like creaminess, salted caramel pear and orange blossom. Disgorged spring 2022, this contains zero dosage and only 1,500 bottles were made.
