100% Pinot Noir, dosage 0g/L, disgorge date April 2020
The Champagne House of Marguet is located in Ambonnay, next to its parent House 'Champagne Marguet-Bonnerave', surrounded by the cities of Reims, Epernay and Châlons-en-Champagne. The parent property was founded in 1870 by two Bonnerave brothers and previously traded under the Bonnerave Frères label. The enthusiastically engaging Benoît Marguet-Bonnerave, the 5th generation in the family, is at the helm of Marguet. Benoît has coverted the vineyards (in 2 villages Ambonnay and Bouzy, both Grand Cruin) to biodynamic farming since 2009 and uses extremely low quantities of sulphites in the winemaking. He has been particularly successful with his Rosé, made from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir by the saignée method. With the exception of the family vineyards (0.70 hectares) on top of the Avenue de Champagne in Epernay, all the other grapes come from other growers, mainly in Premier Cru villages such as Chigny les Roses and Villedommange.
