100% Pinot Noir
Benoît Marguet is a new kid on the block in Champagne, and handles with great dexterity his family’s vines, some of which are farmed biodynamically. The vineyard is scattered, but the heart is on the so-called côte des noirs which includes the superb, perfectly sited grand cru village of Ambonnay. This is full, rich tasting and beautifully rounded, in a style that is similar to Krug (to whom Benoît sells some of his grapes). A lovely Champagne that can be drunk with ease with or without food.
