The cuvee Brut Rosé is one of the great specialities of this House. Made from 65% Chardonnay and 35% Pinot Noir, the wine has an attractive salmon to onion skin colour, a delicate mousse and an elegant and well structured palate which marries summer fruits, gentle spice, peach and hints of roasted nuts.
This is the first single vineyard Champagne produced by Marguet.
A blend of 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir this Champagne opens with a frothy white mousse that shows good hold. Very pale straw base wine colour with profuse exceptionally fine bead. The nose shows very good intensity with aromas of pear intermingling with yeast lees, brioche and citrus followed by some light toastiness. The palate delivers rich creamy textured flavours of pear and citrus followed by yeast lees, toast and brioche. Clean crisp bright acidity finishing dry. Long citrus, pear, yeast lees, baked bread and light cashew aftertaste.
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, 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!
