Marguet Pere et Fils "Cuvée Reserve" Brut Champagne (1.5L) (Previously $90)

SKU #1112154 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Pale gold. A complex, fragrant bouquet evokes poached pear, honey, marzipan and lemon curd, with a buttery topnote. Rich and smoky on the palate, offering sappy orchard fruit flavors and notes of bitter herbs and brioche. Closes on a tangy note, with very good cut and lingering toastiness. Another Champagne that admirably blends richness and vivacity.  (12/ 2012)

K&L Notes

Now in magnum! This rich and powerful Champagne has tons of Pinot Noir muscle and plenty of yeasty, toasty flavor (50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir). I find it to be one of my favorites with richer appetizers (think paté or stuffed mushrooms) or even the main course! It is very rare to see an all Grand Cru Champagne at this price, but with our direct buy (from Mr. Benoit Marguet) we are able to offer a spectacular value with this wine. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer)

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.
