Marguet Pere et Fils Brut Rosé Champagne

SKU #1003874 Jancis Robinson

 *Wine of the Week-02/14/2014)* A really dramatic rosé champagne that manages to be full bodied, dry on the finish but chock full of flavour in the middle. Amazed, I am enjoying the last half glass from a bottle opened for Pamela Vandyke Price's wake almost two weeks ago! This, based on Ambonnay and Bouzy Chardonnay with about a third Pinot Noir, is made rosé by a combination of saignée and addition of red wine. It has a lovely satin texture and some suggestion of rose petals but there is nothing pretty about it - it's much more assertive than that. 17.5/20 points.  (2/ 2014)

K&L Notes

This great rose is finally back in stock--now with a great new package! Benoit Marguet is one of the most ambitious producers in the Champagne region, and all of his vineyards are now in conversion to organic. He has invested in custom made, egg-shaped foudres, and barrel ferments more than half of his wine. The blend is 65% Chardonnay and 35% Pinot Noir. The wine remained two years in Marguet's cellars in contact with yeasts in the bottle. The wine shows a precise style, at the same time elegant and aerial, all grace and lace with a rose petal color and layers of strawberry and raspberry fruit. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne Buyer)

A charming Rose that is a joy to drink. This wine is both elegant and precise, a balance of ripe red fruit and minerality that play together very nicely. This wine became more complex by the glass, the last glass was a delicious mix of red cherry from the 35% Pinot Noir, coupled with Christmas spices of clove and candied fruit, as well as tension provided from very mineral driven Chardonnay. The finish is lengthy with strawberry and raspberry continuing the theme of red fruit, and almost a plum skin feel left on the palate. Very well balance wine.

This is our driest rose, and was a huge hit at the pre-Valentine’s day rose Champagne tasting this year. If you like a wine with lots of red fruit pinot power, but without any trace of heaviness or sweetness, you love the Marguet Pere Et Fils Brut Rose. It tastes great by itself, but will also pair very well with starters like lox or stuffed mushrooms.

Benoit Marguet has produced another gorgeous Brut Rose at a very affordable price. This current effort has a lovely, floral nose that is full of rose petal and strawberry scents. On the palate, lush raspberry and strawberry fruit with a lingering finish of crisp acidity and minerals. Simply yummy!

A beautifully elegant rose that I compare to Billecart Rose at Half the Price! Amazing focus and integration, clean and bright on the nose with a lush mid palate, aged 2 years on the lees, with a bright red cherry finish. A for sure crowd pleaser with its intense yet elegant layers! Sip and Enjoy! This Bubbly wont last forever!

Always delivers! Beautiful color, full of delicate cherries and raspberries with a touch of cocoa powder for good measure. But don't let that description fool you, it is quite dry, with high acid and incredibly elegant!

A staff and customer favorite Champagne, especially for those who love elegant nuanced Roses. Pick up 2, you won't regret it.

This dry rosé is out-and-out one of my favorite Champagnes that we now have in stock . With the great selection of Champagnes that K&L offers, that is saying a lot. The Marguet has a beautiful soft pink color with subtle red berry aromas. In the mouth the Marguet is dry, soft and complex, with red berry flavors dominating. Romance in a bottle!

The perfect rose for those hot summer nights! Clean, crisp, racy with plenty of fresh berry fruit; strawberries and raspberries. When I'm looking for the best rose to pair with my summer meal, the Marguet rose is my top choice.

Light coppery pink color. The quality of Benoit Marguet's pinot noir really shows here; there is a real Burgundian pinot noir savor to this champagne. It's red berry fruited, but also brawny and masculine - not a simply fruity, cheerful rosé Champagne. I quite like it and plan on buying some soon.

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Champagne

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose. View our bestselling Champagne.
