Champagne Marguet is located in the Grand Cru Village of Ambonnay where the property was founded in 1870. Benoit Marguet is the 5th generation of the Marguet family and since 2009, has converted the entire estate to extreme bio-dynamic farming.
Benoit uses organic/no chemical, minimalist, aromatherapy and biodynamic practices in the winemaking. Most notably, he exclusively uses 2 horses to plough all the vineyards which is unique in Champagne and very rare in the world of wine. He believes the horses contribute to social and spiritual balance, and the well being of the soil.
In the winery, the work is done entirely using natural gravity, plot by plot, and in wood vats and small barrels with long aging on lees. His wines have no sugar added and virtually no sulfites are used.
Shows notes of crisp pears, lemon peel, toasted brioche, with elegant bubbles on the finish.
