History

Located in Ambonnay, a famous Village of the Montagne de Reims, the Marguet-Bonnerave House became in 2005: Champagne MARGUET Father & Sons. The MARGUET Champagne started about 1875, thanks to Emile MARGUET, who since 1883 has tended his best vineyards of the Cote des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims, in preparation for the arrival of phylloxera. The Champagne Bonnerave Frères was founded in 1905 by the great-great-grandfather of Benoit Marguet-Bonnerave. Fifth generation of vine growers and chef de cave, Benoit MARGUET, continues today with vigour the development of the House: his passion his the Champagne terroir.

Vineyards

The grapes supply comes primarly from Premier Cru and Grand Cru villages. The vines of the Marguet-Bonnerave family (villages of Ambonnay, Bouzy and Mailly) all offer splendid Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. After that there is a partnership with friends who are known to be very careful vine growers, this makes it possible to benefit from other grapes coming from villages highly esteemed such as Verzy, Mareuil sur Ay, Cumières, Rilly la Montagne,... Each of these brings an extra complexity to the assemblage. Benoit MARGUET has been interested for a long time with natural or organic vine growing. This is not only a personal passion but also enhances the natural balance of the soil and because the vines grow better in this environment it gives better flavour in the grapes ! The vine growers who respect to the maximum the soil and its environment, are our privileged partners. In the cellars, a permanent study and constant research guide our House. It is imperative, and an obligation, to obtain Champagne wines of intense finesse and with the best aromatic balance.

Winemaking

The winemaking comes from tanks and small barrels of oaks. Each element has its own importance: the wine is worked if possible according to the lunar cycle. Frequent tasting makes it possible to envision the future cuvees, and to get ready if needed racking, batonnages and other traditional techniques. The wines then make their prise de mousse in bottle, and will rest in deep cellars for a period of from two to five years. Each cuvee is a creation, each one with its own style. There is no real hierarchy between them, simply varied qualities, to be appreciated according to the moment and the seasons’. We wish you many good times... And as much pleasure in drinking our Champagnes, as we had in making it them...

Salon Oenothèque 1961 / 99 points / If I was close to crying in disappointment over the 66' on the Tidelius tasting, the tears really came in the next flight when this bottle disgorged at the same time and with exactly the same low dosage was so lovely that the emotions overflowed. In fact, this wonderfully youthful champagne is the bottle that most reminded me of the world's best wine 1928 Pol Roger Grauves. Here was the same unlikely contrast between youthfulness and nicely mature notes. The scent is so unreal with its euphoric pheromone-like perfume uplifted by linden, geranium, lily of the valley, acacia, ginger, fresh tarragon, mint, lime peel and Sorrento lemon. Glass-clear brilliance and laser-sharp sharpness and precision. Caressing with faint undertones of vanilla, brioche and roasting. Pure flint mineral finesse and swirling little pearl necklace bubbles that dance ballet in the palate. What is missing in relation to 28' Grauves is a well thickened oiliness that may come in twenty years or so. Imagine that a 51-year-old can personify snowmelt, spring winter and the rebirth of life.

Krug Vintage 1914 / 97 points / Absolutely outstanding how vital old "Krugs" are! Still lots of popcorn and caramel where the scent is sweeter than the taste. There are clear similarities with Pol Roger brulee scented 1914, but the style is a little tighter and slightly younger.

The weather gods were in their best mood in 2008 vintage, and the vines remained unusually fresh from the attack and gave a very good harvest- ing. An absolutely gorgeous vintage that has it all!


Best vintage since 1996, and unlike the tart 1990s, there are wonderful wines directly with their delicious fruit intensity and match- less balance. All the ones I tasted from the vats are magical, and I have a hard time imagining nothing other than buying everything you see of this vintage. So far the leaders are Diebolt- Vallois eur de Passion ahead of Vouette & Sorbée and Michel Turgy, but many giants will surely win over them.

“De Venoge Louis XV: tasted April 13th 2016, 7th anniversary of The Champagne Sommelier entity in USA.
Eye deep Yellow gold, narrow & straight cork. Nice lively stream of bubbles; medium viscosity; nose shows some lactic aromas with bread crust, intertwined with apricot, hints of gasoline, tire, then comes vanilla, banana ripe skin. Palate is beautifully balanced round and lean, salty, chalky, mousse still making its way to the wine. Fudge, nectar of royal dates (versus dry dates) and dry apricot, dry mangoes, condensed milk (sending me back to my childhood in senegal). Nice acidity compensating the short length of the wine...
Delectable. A beautiful wine just to thank god's blessings for being a pionneer... Exquisite bootle for the pleasure of the eye and the palate.
To eat with? Non just let it be...
90 Points”
