2003 Marguet Pere et Fils Brut Rosé Champagne

SKU #1049333

This might be considered Marguet's top wine, and the secret behind it sounds simple. Unlike most rose Champagnes this is neither a saignee method whereby dark grapes are kept on the skins for a short time, after which the juice is bled off, not by the addition of still red wine, but by a combination of the two! In this case, the red comes from Ambonnay and Bouzy. The result is richer, more aromatic and just plain more wonderful rosé Champagne. A very celebratory wine from the color down to the finish, and it just happens to be delicious with turkey!

Benoit Marguet has done it again! This is a very aromatic and somewhat richer style of Rose than most. It is, however, far from overdone! Rich, cherry and strawberry fruit with a lovely, creamy bead and a finish that at once lingers and is refreshing. A perfect choice for chicken, pork and turkey.

I love the 2003 Marguet Rose because it fills that important gap between racy, austere Champagne and the rich, toasty, heavy sparklers of the new world. From a very ripe vintage, this rose Champagne is well-endowed with fruit, showing aromas of strawberry, fig, and dried fruits. The palate is textured, with balanced medium+ acidity, a broad mouthfilling mousse, and a long, crisp, spciey/savory finish. This is a Champagne to have with a meal, as it is textured enough to stand up to poultry, pork, and heavier fishes like Salmon, flavorful enough to hold conversation with spices and savory seasonings, and the acidity and bubbles offer a refreshing cleanse of the palate between bites. It's slso great with chocolate!

Country:

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.
