Description of Sebastian Bordthäuser about 2016:
Nose: The Shaman by Champagne Marguet from the 2016 vintage has been on the lees for around two years and entices with a richly filled display: yeast braid, brioche and pretzel biscuits as well as a generous piece of butter outline the notes of autolysis, which are enhanced by fine notes of apricot with increasing ventilation in the glass . Stoved apples follow, which are accompanied by herbal spices with aromas of sorrel and Giersch. Grounded through the obligatory ground oyster shell, the nose can look forward to the first sip.
Mouth: With a creamy texture and small-sparkling Mousseux in the first taste, it is initially a bit quick-tempered, which can be attributed to the short time after the disgorgement and will soon go away. The bread notes of sourdough and pretzels of pretzels are aromatically reflected in the nose. On the palate it is precise but by no means leptosome, but with a good juice and joyful appearance. Its mouth-watering saline vein nestles around the slim acid nerve and, in combination with the fine phenolic, gives it its non-slip, non-slip feel that accelerates its drinking speed immensely. Fruity and tart with animating notes of red, ripe apple in a long, smoky finish.
