The Champagne Ambonnay 2010 is composed of 58% Pinot Noir and 42% Chardonnay. It is made from highly revered old vines in the Grand Cru village of Ambonnay. The palate is elegant and structured with red fruits and brioche in the nose. We savor this coveted treasure as an apéritif ~ on just about any occasion.
The Champagne House of Marguet is located in Ambonnay surrounded by the famous cities of Reims, Épernay and Châlons-en-Champagne. A union of two Champagne houses, Champagne Marguet was formed in 1875; Champagne Bonnerave Frères was founded in 1905. In 2005, the Marguet-Bonnerave house became Champagne Marguet Père et Fils. Fifth generation, Benoît Marguet converted the vineyards to biodynamic farming in 2009. The base wines from each cru are vinified separately in small oak barrels. In keeping with the tenets of biodynamism, work in the vineyard is carried out according to the lunar cycle with each parcel plowed by horses.
