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 - 80% pinot noir, 20% chardonnay from old vineyards located in Ambonnay classified as 100% Grand Cru. ''18'' refers to 2018 for the base wine (85%) completed by 15% of reserve wine - no dosage - no sulfite.

A nose of roasted apples wafts from the glass, with delicate smoky notes, yeast dough, a lot of chalk underlay. Showing beautiful maturity, with an ingenious field of tension between fresh, chalky-mineral notes and the somewhat wild, oxidative character. Racy on the palate with notes of citrus, green apricot, walnut, sour cherry, and yeast. The acidity is supportive, which makes it a great champagne with food. The finish is carried by a tremendous saltiness, very piquant, almost a slight ginger sharpness to it.
