100% Pinot Noir
Benoit Marguet cultivates only 0.7 hectares in Bouzy. The vines for the Bouzy Grand Cru Extra Brut are grown in the Lieu dits Les loges and Les Hannepés and are fermented individually in wood. The barrels vary from second to ninth occupancy.
Since 2010 the plants have been plowed manually with the horse. Marguets champagne is generally neither enriched nor given a shipping dosage. It works with minimal intervention, without pumps and with little to no use of sulfur.
Description of Sebastian Bordthäuser:
Nose: The 2015 Bouzy by Champagne Marguet is powerful and demanding on the nose. Walnut biscuits and yeast plaits as well as roasted Piedmontese hazelnuts provide the steep template, followed by citric notes of zests and an oxidized, red-cheeked apple. Salted caramel and fresh white mushroom mix with a delicate smoky note, which is underlaid with herbal notes of borage and a drop of bitter almond oil. A champagne that unmistakably calls for the large glasses, but preferably after five years of bottle aging.
Mouth: With a creamy initial taste and a fine pearly mousseux, the 2015 Bouzy has a substantial, opulent palate with an immediate presence from the first drop. Its fruit shines over the extract and is supported by the delicate phenolics of the champagne, which gives it a smoky to spicy back-up. Orange blossom water and Darjeeling make the extremely dry wine appear fruity and tart, balanced by the extract-rich core and its multi-layered, complex and long aftertaste with a spicy, warm finish. No squeamish champagne that still has the best of manners.
