Marguet Père et Fils, Brut Tradition Blanc de Noirs Ambonnay

Marguet Tradition NV #1

70% Pinot Noir; 30% Pinot Meunier, at least 50% of which are premier cru vines in the Montagne de Reims and the Grande Vallée de la Marne.  2007 base vintage, with 20 percent of reserve wines from 2006 and about a third of of the blend vinified in wood.  Disgorgment: winter 2010.  2011 release.

Yellow-gold.  The extrovert at the table, stylish, vivacious, tumescent: creme de mure, rhubarb, singed brioche and a black-tea smokiness.  Fine detail as well, with a supple minerality woven through the fruit.  The finish is long and eloquent.  This ’07 base ’11 release Brut Tradition from Marguet is showing beautifully: à point.  Joyful, expressive Ambonnay.  Now – 2017.
