Marguet Pere et Fils Brut Rosé Champagne (1.5L)

SKU #1133826 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)

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.
