Marguet “Shaman” ‘12’ Brut Reserve Grand Cru
The Champagne Extra Brut “Shaman” is an elegant, complex and deep expression of Ambonnay Grand Cru, produced with vinification with indigenous yeasts withoiut added sulphites in barriques, then in bottle on the lees for at least 24 months. Perfumes of candied fruits, citrus fruits, dried fruits and bread crust animate a smooth, fresh, long and creamy flavour.
The Marguet property was founded in 1870 but the Bonnerave brothers, and today is run by Benoit Marguet-Bonnerave, the 5th consecutive generation to preside over the Grand Cru holdings in Ambonnay and Bouzy. Biodynamically farmed since 2009, Benoit’s wines are the result of a small, vigneron production , qualifying as what we call “Grower Champagne.” The Shaman line are his non-vintage cuvees, sourced entirely from the aforementioned grand cru sites highly elevated on the plateau of Montagne de Reims. Offering 0g/L dosage, the wine is fully dry, leaving the palate with racy acidity and a rich mineral laden backbone.
67% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay
