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. 68% chardonnay, 32% pinot noir from old vineyards located in Ambonnay classified as 100% Grand Cru. ''19'' refers to 2019 for the base wine (85%) completed by 15% of reserve wine - no dosage - sulfite 12mg/L.

Very complex, almost mesmerizing nose of wild raspberries and strawberries, with notes of brioche, cocoa butter, saffron and fresh tobacco. The acid structure is very balanced, harmonious and well integrated into the wine, clearly noticeable, but never setting the pace. The delicately tart vibrant red berries stick to the palate for a long time, wild cherries, turmeric, curry, grapefruit, slightly earthy. Impressive grip with intense salt on the edges of the tongue and a chalky mouthfeel. This is a vinous champagne, yet a little wild, and definitely with an oxidative edge. Full-bodied and with nerves of steel.
