Champagne Marguet - Ambonnay - 2011 - Grand Cru
Shawbury Vintners is proud to be selling these highly regarded Champagne’s produced with such skill and care by 5th Generation - Benoît Marguet.
"Very fresh and refreshing, and very young. Beautiful vinous nose of yeast and cider, brioche, salt. The palate is juicy with very ripe and sweet white fruit. Bone dry, concentrated, great weight on the mid palate and very long. Salty and chalky minerality. Great ageing potential. Big and serious wine."
"Palate shows a smooth acidity showing oak and ripe red apples with a round and dry finish and with long lasting oak tannins. This feels ready to drink already, but will probably keep for many years to come."
Champagne Marguet - Ambonnay - 2011 - Grand Cru is very special indeed and universally regarded as an exceptional achievement.
As with all the recent releases from Marguet, the influence of biodynamics really makes its mark on this wine.
