2007 Marguet Père et Fils Brut Rosé Champagne

SKU #1085800

This might be considered Marguet's top wine, and the secret behind it sounds simple. Unlike most rosé Champagnes this is neither a saignée method (whereby dark grapes are kept on the skins for a short time, after which the juice is bled off) or 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!

This is one of my very favorite rose Champagnes that we stock. The high percentage of barrel fermentation gives it a richness on the palate that can't be duplicated in easy-to-use stainless vats and the high quality Chardonnay in the blend gives it a finish lasts forever. This is a natural to pair with a salmon mousse, and fit to serve at the most special of occasions.

We only have a little bit of this intriguing Rose, made from a base of Pinot Noir, fermented with skin contact, and Chardonnay, with a small amount of still Pinot Noir added before bottling, which serves to intensify color and flavor while adding richness, complexity and structure to the wine. If delicate and ethereal are considered "feminine" style descriptors, I'd say this is "masculine", offering a complex array of grounded rhubarb and currant aromas and flavors with clove and spice accents. But gender aside, this Champagne certainly knows itself: it has power, weight, richness and unveering focus, building in intensity clear on through the finish, which persists in cranberry and cassis flavors far longer than one expects. Impressive.

Wow! We had this champagne with dinner tonight and were very impressed. The Grand Cru pinot breeding showed very clearly in this rose -- yet with food it had lift and the complexity of the wine married well with our well-spiced bar-be-qued shrimp, wilted spinach and saffron rice dinner. Later, enjoying it alone, the weighty, black cherry, aromatic pinot fruit took over and replayed all of the wonderful dinner spices. Disgorged Winter 2012 and wonderful fresh, but plan to lay down a bottle or two to see how it ages since this wine has so much stuffing. So good I stayed up to write this review and order more before it is gone! Another keeper by Gary.
Drink from 2013 to 2020

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.

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.
